Many people have asked whether we have particular partnerships in the Philippines and the answer is that we don’t since Methodism in that country is historically of the American tradition, i.e. the United Methodist Church (UMC).

Money you send for the Philippines to the World Mission Fund or to MRDF will be channelled to UMCOR or to the ACT Alliance (part of the World Council of Churches) and we urge you to respond if you can.
