It takes water delivery, when office wells run dry. It takes 4-wheel-drive trucks. It takes chartered aircraft to shuttle medicines, supplies and staff where there are no roads. It takes tenacity, to remain committed in tough circumstances. It absolutely takes flexibility to do what is needed to get the job done.
Most of all, it takes you and our shared commitment to bringing health, healing and well-being for all. Your gifts help IMA World Health to remain flexible when things don’t go according to plan. Your monthly gift might put diesel fuel in a generator tank that powers a computer to order life-saving medicine. Or it might provide IMA World Health the flexibility to ensure a child has access to chemotherapy where none exists. Both are equally important parts of our work.
Regardless of how your gift is used, it contributes to our shared vision. We can’t do it without you. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit with those we serve, traveling by air, by car, by boat … and I am mindful of all it takes to meet IMA’s mission. Thank you for bringing reassurance, for being the fuel (and sometimes, providing it!) that helps us traverse the often adventuresome seas of bringing health, healing and well-being to all.
