In the aftermath of natural disasters, wars, famines, and other crisis situations, those left behind can be left with a deep sense of loss, insecurity, and overwhelming need. During disasters and emergency situations, NCM partners with local churches as they work to assist people in meeting short-term and long-term needs—both physical and spiritual—regardless of economic status, ethnicity, or religious background. NCM is committed to a holistic approach to emergency relief that includes meeting immediate needs and then walking alongside them on a path toward long-term recovery and stability.
Individuals and families in the Middle East are facing extreme difficulties due to a number of regional conflicts. The crisis levels are higher than they ever have been in recent history.
Nazarene churches are responding to the needs of over 4000 displaced and refugee families, and in most cases the care is personal. Nazarenes are providing food packages, medicines, hygiene kits, and household goods, and in most instances they are visiting families in their homes and praying for them, providing special meals and fellowship activities, and inviting them to church.
South America is home to millions of people who live in a variety of settings, from the Andes Mountains to low-lying valleys and river basins. Diverse communities are exposed to natural disasters including flooding, droughts, landslides, earthquakes, and volcano eruptions. Impoverished communities living in river basins, flood plains, and remote areas are particularly at risk to natural disasters. When a disaster hits, families and individuals in affected areas need immediate assistance, including shelter, food, clean water, and household items. During disasters, NCM partners with local churches as they walk alongside families and communities to meet needs on the road to recovery.

We are 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 not limited to Nazarenes or to Christians only.
Each emergency relief effort is organized locally with the support of the global church through prayer, giving, and technical support. The local church often partners with other organizations and local government agencies in order to best meet needs as well.
