In the aftermath of natural disasters, wars, famines, and other crisis situations, NCM partners with local churches as they work to assist people in meeting short-term and long-term needs—both physical and spiritual—in the face of natural disasters and other emergency situations. 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.
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.
When people in Africa are affected by famine and drought are hungry, local churches respond by providing food. When communities were affected by the deadly Ebola virus, local churches were there. When families are displaced by violence, local churches offer assistance. All of this is possible because other churches around the world join together to help those in need.
When natural or man-made disasters strike, communities are left reeling. As families attempt to pick up the pieces, the Church of the Nazarene helps local responders to meet immediate needs and then walk alongside devastated communities as they take steps toward the journey of long-term recovery. Your support is needed to help local churches meet needs and offer compassion in their communities after fires, floods, storms, and more.
