The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is responding to the humanitarian crisis in Liberia as it recovers from war and violence. UMCOR has also assisted former child soldiers of Liberia to lay down their guns, return to school, and reclaim their lives as children. Northeast of Monrovia, the Ganta United Methodist Hospital is once again providing health care services.

You can help in two important ways: by contributing cash to replenish supplies or by assembling school kits and health kits. Please give to UMCOR Advance #150300, Liberia Emergency, noting the number and emergency on the memo line of your check written to UMCOR. Give through your local United Methodist church or mail contributions to: UMCOR, 475 Riverside Dr., Room 330, New York, NY 10115. Call 1-800-554-8583 to make a credit card donation. One hundred percent of your gift goes to relief and recovery efforts. United Methodists' generous giving to the One Great Hour of Sharing, part of their ongoing contribution to mission around the world, supplements the cost of Advance gifts.

The tarpaulins that normally protect the shelters during the heavy rainy season were looted by LURD soldiers on July 19,2003 when they attacked the camp and forced people to run away. People are slowly starting to return. Credit: Callie Long/ACT International, August 2003. Click on photo to see a larger version.
