Church of the Brethren and IMA: a partnership for more than 30 years

Brethren churches have partnered with IMA World Health for decades, to bring health, healing and well-being to all God’s children.

The Church of the Brethren is an integral part of the IMA World Health mission. From warehousing IMA medical supplies in the New Windsor, Md. warehouse to saving lives in our response to the 2014 Ebola outbreak, Brethren congregations rely on IMA World Health.

Ebola lessons learned

IMA World Health joined other agencies who responded to the 2014 Ebola outbreak on Capitol Hill to bring lessons learned and consider better ways of responding to crises in the future. Church of the Brethren congregations were instrumental in emboldening IMA’s response to the deadly epidemic.
