Update on UMCOR's work in Puerto Rico
“We feel with the people of Puerto Rico and in a special way with the Methodist Church of Puerto Rico, Bishop Héctor (Ortiz Vidal) is our board member and we have a number of Global Ministries missionaries and their families serving in Puerto Rico. We pray for their safety and stand in solidarity as one Methodist family.”
– Thomas Kemper General Secretary, General Board of Global Ministries
With the passing of the storm, #hurricaneMaria left #PuertoRico with severe damage to homes, power lines, and widespread flooding. Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said #Maria is the "most devastating storm to hit the island this century, if not in modern history."
At this time, UMCOR - United Methodist Committee On Relief is unable to receive communications from its partners on the island because of power outages. #UMCOR will wait to respond as its partners conduct assessment of what is most needed.
To support UMCOR - United Methodist Committee On Relief’s response to disasters in the United States and its territories, give to Advance #901670: https://secure3.convio.net/gbgm/site/SPageNavigator/umcor_donate.html?type=1002&project=901670
