Typhoon Haiyan damaged or destroyed more than 1.19 million homes and impacted more than 12 million people in 44 provinces when it tore across the Philippines on November 8. Staff and volunteers of the Philippines office of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) have worked tirelessly to provide assistance to survivors.
In 2014, UMCOR will broaden its support for Typhoon Haiyan survivors to encompass psychosocial support and the reconstruction or rehabilitation of permanent housing. Your gifts to International Disaster Response, Advance #982450 support the relief efforts of this emergency and enable UMCOR to respond efficiently to other disasters as they occur.
Tornadoes wreaked havoc in communities from Texas to Minnesota this year, with a late spate of twisters tearing through the Midwest in November. UMCOR US Disaster Response executive, Greg Forrester, reached out to the affected conferences, offering prayers and solidarity.
A year after Hurricane Sandy flooded densely populated areas of the northeastern United States, much work still needs to be done. Across New Jersey, New York, and other areas affected by Hurricane Sandy, hundreds of people have been able to move back home. The burgeoning conflict in Syria has displaced millions of families and caused some two million children to drop out of school, according to UN reports. UMCOR is working with partner International Blue Crescent (IBC) to address the special needs of 400 Syrian refugee children in Turkey. More than 3,000 schools have been damaged or destroyed since the conflict in Syria began in March 2011.
UMCOR remains committed to assisting displaced Syrians, working together with international partners.
In 2013, UMCOR Sager Brown and UMCOR West experienced critical shortages of relief-supply kits given the increased need for the supplies in the United States and around the world.
UMCOR provided assistance to survivors of Cyclone Phailin, which destroyed more than 240,000 homes and 5,000 schools in Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, India. UMCOR worked with longtime partner Church’s Auxiliary for Social Action (CASA) to provide relief for survivors. UMCOR is helping communities in the South Sudan state of Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBEG) to have better access to water and sanitation. All in all, 34,456 people now have clean and safe water delivered to them—and 80,000 were provided with hygiene and sanitation information to increase their chances of fending off disease.
You can support UMCOR in all of these efforts and more in the coming year by giving to UMCOR’s undesignated fund, UMCOR Advance #999895. And, please pray for those who are hungry, displaced, sick or in poverty because of these and other natural and human-made disasters, and for the workers who minister to them. Some Internet Service Providers like AOL, Yahoo!, Hotmail, and Juno use web filtering software that allows you to add web addresses to a "buddy," "trusted," "safe," or approved list. Compelled by Christ to be a voice of conscience on behalf of the people called Methodist, UMCOR works globally to alleviate human suffering and advance hope and healing. With regular large scale disasters already common in North America, it’s a good time to talk a bit about disaster preparation and how a 5 gallon bucket can help provide some good physical insurance against a catastrophic situation. A well designed emergency kit will contain the best bits of modern technology and healthcare packaged neatly in a carryable 5 gallon bucket. The simplest way to invest in your five gallon insurance plan is to get your hands on a professionally built kit.
These pieces of kit weren’t included in the example bucket build above but are listed here by popular demand. The food suply kits they show on the christian shows that are made to last for 25 years or so are very expensive.
My personal doctor, and the ER staff says that a tampon or maxi pad, in an emergency, is the best thing(s) to use.
Or you could just hang it from the wire handle of the bucket and still be able to use it like normal. The bucket itself is a wonderful survival tool (carry water, make a water filter, for gathering and foraging, portable potty, and lots of other uses).
Add in a roll of thick trash bags too and pieces of funnoodle that have been split part way. If someone has to be told not to poop in their water bucket, they aren’t going to survive 24 hrs.
I have a suitcase carrier with wheels and a bungie cord – this was pre-wheeled suitcases!! The only thing I’ve noticed about crank up radios and flashlights is that even they will eventually not hold a charge. Also if you coat a Q-tip or liece of cloth with Vaseline you can use it as a candle wick, or to help start a fire. In addition to our work with IHN, the Church provides financial support for United Methodist missionaries around the world through our Connectional Ministry giving, which means that the missionaries do not have to raise their own support. We support disaster and refugee work through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), which is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to alleviating human suffering around the globe. A member of Coburg United Methodist Church in Oregon (about seven miles from the city of Eugene), Matthews went on a mission trip to the UMCOR West depot in Salt Lake City, where he helped prepare relief supplies to ship to people in need. Struck by the difference the kits make, Matthews decided to make relief supplies his personal ministry.
Whether one person delivers relief supply kits, assembles kits, or raises money to purchase kits, that person’s efforts result in real help for people in need, pointed out Ted Warnock, interim executive director of UMCOR Relief Supplies. As the kits help meet the needs in Haiti, UMCOR needs to replace those relief supplies in order to be able to quickly respond to the next wave of need, wherever that may be. So far this year, UMCOR has shipped more than 107,000 health kits and nearly 43,000 school kits to destinations across the world.
In Haiti, UMCOR is one of various nongovernmental organizations partnering with Care International and its Partnership for Learning Program.
UMCOR will provide school kits and health kits, as well as text books that will be purchased in Haiti, in support of the CARE program. UMCOR's Haiti field staff also will provide hygiene education, including teaching children how to properly wash their hands and brush their teeth. UMCOR's goal is to provide 50,000 each of school kits and health kits, at a rate of 10,000 of each type of kit per year for the next five years. You also can support this ministry with your gifts to Material Resources, Advance #901440, which enhances the purchase of emergency relief supplies all throughout the year. Hurricane Katrina brought a new set of rules for response among faith-based and voluntary agencies.
After tornadoes devastated Moore, Oklahoma yesterday, concerned individuals are asked to pray and stay out of the way of first-responders.
UMCOR brings relief to special needs children in Armenia through basic food and material supplies. You also can support this ministry with your gifts to Material Resources, Advance #901440, which enhances the purchase of emergency relief supplies all throughout the year.
UMCOR has empowered a new, local organization to continue its humanitarian work in Georgia. UMCOR began humanitarian operations in 1993 to address the needs of women and children by providing essential medicines and treatment practices, aimed at combating the most common and preventable illnesses facing this group. UMCOR’s current operations in Georgia focus on the core sectors of health, conflict transformation, infrastructure rehabilitation, livelihood strengthening, agriculture, and humanitarian response.
UMCOR began implementing health-centered programming in Georgia in the early 1990s, providing essential medicines to vulnerable populations, including internally displaced people, women, and children.
Distributions of non-medical commodities: UMCOR supports the distribution of health kits, school kits, and layette kits leveraged from United Methodist communities and other donors through UMCOR Sager Brown and the UMCOR Relief-Supply Network. Infrastructure rehabilitation: With US DOS support, UMCOR has been implementing small reconstruction projects (SRP) for vulnerable populations in Georgia. For more than 20 years, contact between citizens of Georgia and citizens of the breakaway region of Abkhazia has been limited, at best. Encouraging health professionals to positively influence their communities by promoting increased confidence and interaction across the ABL.

UMCOR recently completed the Livelihood Support for IDPs from Abkhazia project with support from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
Employing artificial insemination techniques to improve the local livestock breed in order to increase milk production.
Through the project, UMCOR beneficiaries increased their household income by selling raw milk to the dairy processing unit, eliminating the costs of home production and transportation of cheese, transforming home cheese-making to small-scale commercial dairy processing, increasing output and diversification of dairy products, and enhancing the milking capacity of the local cattle breed by using artificial insemination to introduce new livestock varieties. In response to adverse health outcomes experienced following the 2008 conflict in South Ossetia, UMCOR’s multi-donor-funded Maternal and Child Health project addressed emergency health and nutritional needs through the provision of breast milk substitute (BMS), complementary food, and hygiene supplies to non-breastfed infants, pregnant women, lactating mothers, and mothers who have been clinically diagnosed as unable to breastfeed largely due to stress and other complications. A veterans’ hospital in Tblisi, Georgia, was one beneficiary of a decades-long medical commodities program.
UMCOR relief kits bring joy to children, parents, and the elderly in the republic of Georgia. In Kos, Greece, tents are set up by the shoreline to accommodate refugees fleeing Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. The destabilizing economic stresses that Greece has been undergoing, especially its banking crisis, threaten the country’s ability to provide basic services for the refugees. Many families sleep outdoors in public spaces or in abandoned buildings without electricity or running water. UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, is working with partner GlobalMedic to help alleviate refugees’ suffering on the Greek islands of Kos and Lesbos. Your gift to International Disaster Response, Advance #982450, will help refugees like those arriving in Greece, and others facing emergency situations around the world.
United Methodists in Europe practice Christian hospitality in the wake of the migration crisis. UMCOR and partners CWS-Asia and HAMI provide warmth for Syrian refugees in Iran as winter brings sub-zero temperatures. At a former army barracks in the village of Messstetten, refugees share stories of peril and hope. UMCOR and partner IOCC provide winterization items for Jordanians and Syrian refugee families.
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) has provided an emergency grant to the Methodist Church of DR Congo to support its efforts to reduce that stress and also improve short-term access to food for both the displaced and the host communities.
Your gift to Congo Emergency (DRC), UMCOR Advance #198400, supports UMCOR’s relief and development work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As survivors of a string of violent tornadoes in Oklahoma last month turn toward their long-term recovery, your prayers are asked for them and all who assist them. Please also remember in your prayers those who are dealing with severe flooding in Illinois, Missouri, and the Dakotas, and with the aftermath of the first named storm, Andrea, of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. UMCOR is seeking a qualified professional to oversee the program and technical aspects of its water, sanitation, and hygiene work in Haiti. View a new UMCOR video on the role relief kits play in a crisis, and learn how you can assemble and ship kits to help survivors of disasters from Oklahoma to Syria and beyond. A woman in Nepal drinks recently purified water thanks to UMCOR implementing partner GlobalMedic. Injury, loss of life, and physical damage extend through 60 of the country’s 75 districts.
UMCOR is supporting the work of partners on the ground in Nepal who can provide quick-acting assistance. GlobalMedic has been operating large-scale water purification units in Nepal to provide clean drinking water at the household and community levels. GlobalMedic is delivering and installing 50 water purification systems (the AP700 Ultrafiltration Membrane Unit) along with accompanying hand-pumps, which will each provide safe, clean drinking water to an entire community. Aerial surveys by GlobalMedic’s team, which will be deployed in a rotating fashion until at least July, are helping to assess exactly where this lifesaving aid is most needed. CASA is acquiring hygiene kits and other items, such as cooking utensils, pots, and blankets, for distribution in Nepal by UMN. Locally based NCEG will use the support it receives from UMCOR to acquire and distribute tents for emergency shelter and a two-week supply of food rations among 250 affected families.
Crisis reports continue to come from the small team of United Methodist Global Ministries missionaries currently serving in Nepal. Your gift to International Disaster Response, Advance #982450 will enable UMCOR to respond in a timely way to emergencies like the Nepal earthquake, working collaboratively with local and international partners. UMCOR continues to work with, and build the capacity of several partners, to meet the needs of Nepal earthquake survivors. How hundreds of children learned to climb Mount Everest while learning a valuable lesson on giving. UMCOR supports on-the-ground partners in Nepal who can provide quick-acting assistance for earthquake survivors. UMCOR considers it a sacred trust to ensure that funds are granted quickly, but also carefully, so that projects have the best chance of providing humanitarian assistance in a way that does no harm, is impartial, and respects the dignity of those receiving assistance. In November, a convoy of three UMCOR vehicles carried emergency food supplies to survivors in the hard-hit city of Tacloban in Leyte Province. Jack Amick, expressed thanks for the generous outpouring of support by United Methodists and others of goodwill which made the relief trips possible. But there are also hundreds of people whose recovery is only just beginning, pointed out Denise Tiedemann, who fields calls from Hurricane Sandy survivors for A Future With Hope, a disaster-response program of the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference. Not only are children missing out on their education, they also are being traumatized by the violence.
Child-Friendly Spaces are being created for children to receive psychosocial care and education to help them deal with the anxieties of war. UMCOR Program Manager Nicholas Jaeger remarked, “The number of refugees and internally displaced persons from the Syria crisis continues to grow, as do the needs of those displaced.
Assistance included emergency food rations for 1,000 families and plastic tarps to cover storm-battered homes. UMCOR partner Global Medic helped to meet that need by setting up water purification units in 15-30 of the affected locations. NBEG sits along the border of Sudan in the new nation of South Sudan, and suffers from a lack of resources, especially water.
UMCOR is partnered with Santé Rural (Rural Health), or SANRU, the primary recipient of the Global Fund award. This supports the general work of UMCOR and allows us to provide funding where it is most needed.

A new water pump connected to one of seven boreholes UMCOR helped to drill in South Sudan’s Northern Bahr el Ghazal state. First of all, it gives you a certain intimacy with your kit – you know exactly what’s in there because you were the one who researched it and put it in there!
At the end of this post is a list of every single item you see here so you can make this exact emergency kit for yourself. On the back is a list of important phone numbers such as relatives, insurance companies, local law enforcement, fire department, etc. You can download this list in an editable Word format by clicking here: 5 Gallon Bucket Emergency Kit It may be instructive to compare this list with the much higher calorie emergency kit from Mayday disaster preparation company.
Moist towelettes and antiseptic towelettes and latex gloves kept on top so you can clean your hands before digging through supplies.

Place the lint inside the roll and if you needed an emergency fire, this would be a good starter.
No where on the box does it makes this claim and it would be illegal and dangerous to not list it. Only facts I found from research regarding chemicals added to some of these products are deodorizing perfume, & the pesticides used while growing the cotton filler. I had a surgical wound on my inner thigh and the Dr’s office used a maxi pad as a bandage. Of course if you have better, use better… but they should definately be included in the first aide kit.
If you want to take your chance with an open bullet wound, or other gushing wound, by all means go ahead. They are bleached and have a million terrible chemicals in them that could cause rashes, blisters and other skin issues that you would not want on top of having a wound.
We also threw in a pack of individually wrapped sanitary napkins in the first aid portion-great sterile bandages!
Mine doesnt have batteries but Super Caps inside, they will last 1000 years befoer they have an issue.
However, if your skin is damp and you put Vaseline on it, it will lock the moisture into your skin. Benzocaine can be used as a topical anesthetic and super glue can be used for everything including a liquid bandaid. Recently, two containers, each loaded with more than 10,000 health kits and 10,000 school kits, were shipped from UMCOR Sager Brown to Port au Prince, Haiti, where UMCOR and its partners in Haiti are working together to enroll 50,000 out-of-school children in school by 2018. In addition to its two supply depots—UMCOR Sager Brown in Baldwin, Louisiana, and UMCOR West, UMCOR also coordinates with a network of United Methodist relief supply depots across the United States.
Assemble health kits and school kits, and send them to one of the depots in the UMCOR Relief-Supply Network, Krazia suggested.
Separatist movements in the regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia provoked the internal displacement of nearly 300,000 people.
UMCOR’s Georgia mission has grown since its inception and now implements a number of transitional development projects throughout the country. Today, the organization implements its ongoing Medical Commodities Distribution Program through a combination of relief and development health projects. Hundreds of thousands of kits have been distributed in Georgia over the lifetime of the project. UMCOR renovates and rehabilitates outpatient clinics, schools, and kindergartens, mostly serving communities of internally displaced persons (IDP). Separatist and geopolitical interests, combined with mass population displacement, have deepened animosities and driven a wedge between ethnic Georgians and Abkhaz communities.
Beginning in 2008, BMS was distributed to 1,396 non-breastfed infants residing in 27 different conflict-affected communities. As of October 2015, some 400,000 refugees traveling by sea had reached its shores, according to the United Nations’ refugee agency.
By early October 2015, some 400,000 refugees traveling by sea had reached its shores, according to the United Nations’ refugee agency. While reception centers have been set up, living conditions for new arrivals are dire, with severe overcrowding creating a poor state of hygiene. And accompanying these inadequate physical conditions, there also has been a serious shortage of food.
Altogether, UMCOR has provided more than $2.2 million in refugee aid for people fleeing Syria and Iraq. For Amick, this setting evocatively connects their plight to a scene in the Bible, where Jesus models hospitality. For a full description of the responsibilities and requirements of the position please visit the Careers page of the UMCOR website.
The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, which began June 1 and will run through November 30, is forecasted to be particularly active.
Sending relief kits through the UMCOR Relief Supply Network is an efficient and immediate way to help in the wake of an emergency. Displaced families in DR Congo will receive food relief with the help from UMCOR as it provides funding support to the Methodist Church there. The devastation embraces cities like greater Kathmandu (the country’s capital) and Pokhara, and also vast stretches of often inaccessible rural areas that include steeply mountainous territory. Since the quake occurred April 25, UMCOR has supplied grants to four partner organizations totaling $315,039.
Jack Amick, UMCOR assistant general secretary for International Disaster Response, emphasized the need for international efforts to be carefully matched with the specific nature of Nepal’s own conditions and experience. In addition, GlobalMedic will distribute 13 large tents for use by schools and hospitals with damaged infrastructure. UMCOR also is contributing to a separate relief appeal by UMN, which has run community-based health and education programs in Nepal for more than 60 years. It was the first of five such UMCOR relief trips to be completed before the end of December. UMCOR was awarded a $2.5 million grant from the American Red Cross to support some of these long-term efforts. UMCOR is exempt from tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of the United States and qualifies for the maximum charitable contribution deduction by donors.
Amick heads the relief agency's international disaster response and Ayo-Eduarte is UMCOR's manager for the Philippines. With UMCOR’s support, a two-week supply of emergency food rations went to 1,000 families. Prepared kits will usually contain both food and water (or water purification) and general emergency supplies such as flashlights and first aid. Humans usually need at least 2,000 calories every single day – which adds up really fast.
In love all your works have begun, by love you sustain them and in your love our life is everlasting.
He’s made three trips this year, and hopes to expand his range to the entire west coast. Most recently, the Missouri Conference designated one of its facilities as an UMCOR affiliate warehouse for relief supplies. This and the dramatic collapse of Georgia's economy after the dissolution of the Soviet Union led to widespread unemployment, civil unrest, and significant increases in maternal and infant mortality as people struggled to survive. UMCOR’s program integrates the distribution of medicines, medical equipment and supplies, and non-medical commodities, including health kits, school kits, and layette kits, with the implementation of small reconstruction projects (SRP) and the provision of technical assistance in the area of primary health care. Since 2005, UMCOR has implemented ten SRPs in Georgia and plans to continue infrastructure rehabilitation activities throughout the country. Most of them are from Syria (70 percent), followed by Afghanistan (18 percent) and Iraq (4 percent), all fleeing armed conflicts.
Here’s one popular emergency kit that condenses survival supplies for a family of 4 inside a single 5 gallon bucket. Depending on your anticipated needs, you may want one or several food-geared buckets in addition to your emergency supply kit. I continued using them as the wound got smaller and even went to the think panty liners later. That’s why an EpiPen is a critically important part of our emergency supply but might not be relevant at all for other families.
I’ve linked some of the more unusual items that you might not find at your neighborhood hardware store. You’ll be able to include many household materials you already have, and you can get a better deal on the items you do need to buy by cutting out the middleman.
