UMCOR – United Methodist Committee On Relief for Bahamas

A NASA satellite image captures Hurricane Dorian over the Bahamas on Sept. 1, as the powerful category 5 storm was directly over Great Abaco Island. Dorian became the strongest hurricane on record in the northwestern Bahamas. NASA Earth Observatory image by Lauren Dauphin, using MODIS data from NASA EOSDIS/LANCE and GIBS/Worldview.

Hurricane Dorian wreaked havoc on the Bahamas. UMCOR has awarded a solidarity grant to Bahamas Methodist Habitat, the Disaster Ministry of the Bahamas Conference of the Methodist Church. This grant provides immediate, emergency short term funding to address the basic human needs of those affected by this catastrophic storm. But more help is needed.

We can join with UMCOR by donating to UMCOR’s disaster response and recovery funds for the Bahamas. Please make your gift payable to Fork Chapel and mark your gift for UMCOR.
