The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) responds to emergencies around the world - both natural and human made. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenge of world hunger and poverty - has helped to heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.

When this displaced Angolan woman returned to her home she found only its charred ruins. It had been burned down during the 26 years of civil war in Angola finally ended in April 2002. UMCOR assists people around the world who have been displaced by war or natural disasters like like floods and volcanic eruptions. Credit: Paul Jeffrey/ACT, 2002.
