Haiti Disaster Relief
Donate Online Here: International Disaster Response and Recovery Advance fund
United Methodists are reaching out with their prayers and pocketbooks as Haiti faces a devastating earthquake and encroaching major storm. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is collecting financial donations through its International Disaster Response and Recovery Advance fund. The relief arm, part of the United Methodist Board of Global Ministries, also is in conversation with partners on the ground about the next steps to help the impoverished country, which also faces political unrest, gang violence, and COVID-19.
So far, the death toll has climbed to some 1,300 people following the 7.2-magnitude quake that struck Haiti’s southwest peninsula on August 14. The temblor - with an epicenter about 78 miles (125 kilometers) west of capital Port-au-Prince - triggered landslides, collapsed buildings, and sent aftershocks across the country.
UMCOR stands firm in its commitment to alleviate suffering and is working with partners on how to best meet basic and immediate needs as it has done in the past.
