As the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church, UMCOR strengthens and transforms people and communities.
We pursue this by reaching out to the most vulnerable people in Rwanda and creating environments where they are empowered to live out their full potential at work, home and in their spiritual lives.
As you learn more about us, you will read an incredible story about how God used one woman to step out in faith to help a group of impoverished widows in Rwanda. What has resulted is phenomenal. Lives are changed forever, our team continues to grow and we have developed amazing partners who continually spur us on toward our vision.
