Gifts went to a long list of ministries and causes, including: UMCOR’s disaster response efforts; the Tanzania (West Africa) UMC’s hospitality facilities; the Red Bird Mission Clinic Community Health, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Program; Africa University scholarships; the Andean Rural Healthcare Program in Bolivia; Church World Service’s Refugee Response; Haiti Children Project; Bishop John K.
