About Lutheran World Relief and IMA World Health:

In January 2019, Lutheran World Relief and IMA World Health combined operations to dramatically increase our impact on breaking the cycle of poverty and promoting healthier families and communities throughout the world.

With nearly 75 years of demonstrated expertise helping to transform some of the hardest-to-reach places in the developing world, Lutheran World Relief is an innovative, trusted international nongovernmental organization committed to those otherwise cut off from basic human services and opportunities.

IMA World Health provides solutions to health-related problems in the developing world. IMA — which stands for Interchurch Medical Assistance — was founded in 1960 by a consortium of faith-based relief agencies to provide medical supplies to the world’s poorest populations.
