Following the Jan 12 earthquake, UMCOR re-established its operations in Haiti and instituted a five-year plan to support the rebuilding of Haiti, which includes three phases: Emergency, Recovery and Rehabilitation. The Emergency phase addresses immediate needs—food, clean water and sanitation, temporary shelter, and emotional and spiritual support. During Recovery, UMCOR will build housing, schools, clinics; restore agriculture, and create income generating opportunities. During Rehabilitation, assistance for physical reconstruction, economic development, and rebuilding of health, education, and other systems will be offered. In collaboration with the Methodist Church in Haiti and other partners, volunteer projects are also in development.
