UMCOR

UMCOR is the United Methodist Commitee on Relief.

This wing of the church is noted for using 100% of the money donated going to the project, since the overhead is absorbed by the national church. UMCOR is present throughout the world as well as in the United States. If you click on the logo, you can see some of the current projects being undertaken by UMCOR.
