UMCOR Sunday Offering

YOUR CONTRIBUTION ENSURES UMCOR’S RESPONSE IN TIMES OF CRISIS

“Es genial!” exclaims Ada Villanueva Cadelaria, gazing at her brightly painted home in Hatillo, Puerto Rico. Chickens dart across her feet as she gropes for the words—“It’s great!”

Cadelaria and her two children had lived with her mother since Hurricane Maria severely damaged their home in September 2017. Thanks to a South Carolina Annual Conference mission team who traveled to Hatillo five months later, the family’s small house has a new metal roof and fresh paint and wood trim.

The team tore down a rotted, leaky roof and replaced it with a new metal one. “We painted the house inside and out,” said volunteer Jessica Brodie, “made her a new ladder and gave her a ton of metal from the house which she can use for her chickens.”

Immediately after hurricanes Irma and Maria, which hit the Caribbean island two weeks apart, the UMCOR provided survivors with food, clean water, temporary shelter, hygiene supplies and basic items. UMCOR also awarded a $110,000 emergency grant to the Methodist Church of Puerto Rico. In early 2018, the MCPR began moving into the next phases of recovery, requesting emergency-response and rebuild teams.

When United Methodists give generously on UMCOR Sunday, they support the operating activities of our worldwide relief and development agency. The offering ensures that 100 percent of every designated gift to UMCOR for disaster response and other critical needs goes directly to address those needs.

Some give money—and more. The South Carolina team, who repaired four houses in Puerto Rico, was an example of sharing time and talents. “We had an awesome week,” said Matt Brodie.
