The Emergency Disaster Fund makes possible Brethren response to disasters around the world.

Reaching disaster survivors since 1960

A disaster can tear apart the fabric of a community. Families that struggle to survive day to day often find it impossible to recover from a disaster without help.

The Emergency Disaster Fund enables Brethren Disaster Ministries to reach out to the most vulnerable communities anywhere and share the burden in three ways –

  • Rebuilding homes following domestic disasters, using volunteer work teams who donate their time and skills.
  • Children’s Disaster Services volunteers give loving care to children in temporary child care centers.
  • Global disaster response projects of the Church of the Brethren and faith-based international partners.

The Emergency Disaster Fund is sustained through contributions from individuals, local Church of the Brethren congregations, and District-wide fundraisers. All of Brethren Disaster Ministries’ programming is supported by this Fund.
