The General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church, through its disaster-relief arm and in conjunction with local and international partners and Nepal-based Global Ministries missionaries, is responding to the earthquake that rocked Nepal on April 25. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), Global Ministries’ relief and development unit, approved a grant of $90,000 for international partner GlobalMedic to bring clean water to survivors through provision of household and public water-filtration units.
