SATURDAY’S RESULTS Powerball:
works in 19 countries, focusing on disaster relief and sustainable development.
IMA was established in New Windsor in 1960 as Interchurch Medical Assistance by an ecumenical group, of which Lutheran World Relief was a founding member, said Rick Santos, who has run IMA for about a decade. He is serving as a senior adviser during the merger. IMA runs health programs in six countries with about $90 million.
The new organization will be called Lutheran World Relief-IMA World Health to maintain identity among the people served and donors. The organizations will remain separate legal entities until the merger is approved by regulatory authorities. The staffs, which will be combined, are meeting weekly to work through the logistics.
Joining forces will allow the combined organization to serve communities more holistically and better compete for program dollars, said Tanvi Nagpal, director of the international development program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. By working together, they will also reduce the burden on the communities they’re serving and their governments by giving them fewer outsiders and bureaucracies to deal with, she said.
“They are both bringing, not just their expertise, but their values to the same community — and are also reducing the cost of the host community,” Nagpal said. “They improve their impact on the ground and the community benefits by not having to deal with two separate entities. To the extent this allows these organizations to reach more people, it’s a good thing.
“There is such a vast need for humanitarian assistance in the world right now.”
IMA set out to find a partner more than two years ago, and Lutheran World Relief shared a similar approach in the global communities in which they serve, Santos said. He said both organizations are faithbased and work to build the capacity of local partners, rather than create parallel systems.
The organizations have worked together frequently over the past half-century, he said. For example, IMA has directed more than $75 million in medications and medical supplies to Lutheran World Relief for its outreach.
The new partnership opens up more possibilities, Santos said.
“We can begin to look at things a little more holistically and address the whole person with our technical expertise in health and their’s in building agricultural livelihoods,” he said. “If you look at working with people to lift them out of poverty, it takes a multi-sector approach.”
Speckhard said the value of a merger came into clear focus for him when he was visiting Niger in West Africa, where Lutheran World Relief has worked for decades. As part of the outreach, the organization had helped a community in a remote area create a livelihood for its people involving sheep. But just as the families there were getting a foothold, someone got sick and the family ended up spending all of its pooled money on transportation to get the sick person to a faraway health clinic, not even having enough to pay for the health care itself.
“When you travel overseas and visit these impoverished communities and the families who are really struggling in their lives, you find it’s not really a fair choice to say would you rather have food security or would you rather have health,” said Speckhard, who will continue to earn about $318,000 a year after the merger. “The reality is, these things are intertwined.
“By coming together we’re going to be able to look more holistically at the needs of the people in the communities in a way that ensures a more sustainable and lasting result.”
