ADVANCE: Disaster Response - United States and International

The Advance is an official program of The United Methodist Church for voluntary, designated, second-mile giving. Advance gifts that fund emergency and disaster relief projects are managed by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).

Disaster Response, International: UMCOR responds to natural or civil disasters that are interruptions of such magnitude that they overwhelm a community's ability to recover on its own. UMCOR's work on behalf of United Methodists is global and includes countries in Africa, Asia, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.

Disaster Response, United States: UMCOR responds to natural disasters, such as floods, earthquakes, major storms and tornadoes, as well as disasters of human origin, such as explosions, shootings, and bombings.
