Haiti Relief information

At this time, it is not safe or possible for volunteers to go. The country is in crisis with severe lack of fuel, food and water. There are significant transportation and security challenges. The General Board of Global Ministries will be working with the Methodist Church of Haiti and other organizations in providing medical and other services. If you want to volunteer to go to Haiti when the opportunity becomes available, go to www.umocm.com  and fill out the survey for volunteers.
