World in Crisis

Emergencies impact the lives of millions around the world, leaving people in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. The demand for emergency aid has escalated in recent years, and while some emergencies, such as the 2010 Haiti earthquake and hurricanes Irma, Jose and Maria in 2017, gain widespread media coverage, many low-profile cases are scarcely publicized and receive little public attention.


Climate change alongside increased violent conflict has led to a number of humanitarian emergencies in the 21st century. We help those impacted by natural disasters and conflicts across the world by providing medications, clean water, food and shelter.

The world is facing the worst humanitarian disaster since 1945. Lives have been torn apart by conflict and poverty, and now 20 million people face starvation and 1.4 million children could die by the end of the year if we do not help.

We do not know where the next emergency will be, and pray that it does not happen, but if it does happen, you can count on us to deliver hope and aid with your help.

When we look back on this critical time in our history, will we be able to say we did all we could to help? Although UMR is working continuously through our partners on the ground in Iraq, Palestine, Jordan (Syrian Refugees), Yemen and Somalia, we cannot do anything without your support. The world is in crisis and it’s up to each and every one of us to help ease the suffering.
