GLOBAL EMERGENCY RELIEF RESPONSE

When disaster strikes, the many of the world's most vulnerable people don’t have safety nets; when homes and livelihoods are destroyed, there is often nowhere to go and no way to recover from the loss of income. They lose the things on which their survival depends. Not having access to stable work, savings systems, good food-growth systems, and other stability networks in place means that disasters just make life harder for those already struggling to survive.

 

NCM is especially committed to working with churches to care for the most vulnerable individuals and families in their communities. The focus is on communities where the Church of the Nazarene has a presence, but assistance is available to the entire community.

Around the world:

  • Extreme weather and disasters push 26 million people into poverty every year

  • Many communities experiencing poverty are built densely on low-lying land, making them more vulnerable to floods, landslides, earthquakes, and fires

  • In countries with high rates of poverty, the effect of disasters on well-being is greater than the impact on assets

NCM is especially committed to working with churches to care for the most vulnerable individuals and families in their communities. The focus is on communities where the Church of the Nazarene has a presence, but assistance is available to the entire community.

NCM’s emergency relief efforts are:

  • Organized locally with the support of the global church through prayer, giving, and technical support

  • Partnerships between local churches, who often work with other organizations and local government agencies in order to best meet needs as well

  • Long-term, holistic care addressing physical, economic, and spiritual needs

Jesus helped people where there was need, and when there was need.

NCM Canada wants to be ready to help when the need arises as well. Whether it is devestation as the result of a natural disaster, or the fall out from war - we want to be ready to go and provide the necessary help.

 

This is one of the reasons why we are so grateful for supporters who provide regular, monthly support.  By having funds come in on each month, we are able to have a better idea of how much we will have to work with, should an emergency occur.

 

NCM Canada partners with other organizations to provide the appropriate response based on the situation.

Each gift will be used as designated except where any given need has been fully met or in the case when the specified project(s) cannot be reasonably carried out, then the donor agrees that the designated gift may be used where it is needed most.
