Update: Hurricane Dorian Response

As Hurricane Dorian formed in the Atlantic Ocean, United Methodists collaborated to develop response strategies that could be used regardless of the storm’s direction. Along Dorian’s projected path – from Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, Florida, Georgia and up to the Carolinas and Virginia – Methodist partners received encouragement and immediate response from the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). 

UMCOR has awarded a solidarity grant to Bahamas Methodist Habitat for immediate, emergency short-term funding to address basic human needs in the Bahamas. The relief agency also expects to partner with the Methodist Church in the Caribbean and the Americas.

At this stage, donations to UMCOR are the best way for United Methodists to respond, and it is strongly encouraged. Donations allow UMCOR to continue working in the impacted region. Placements for volunteer teams will come later, after critical conversations with partners and an infrastructure has been established.
