Review for International Midwife Assistance, Inc, Boulder, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization puts your money to work, not only saving lives, but changing attitudes locally, through education, encouraging self sufficiency and self worth. IMA is thrifty and has excellent oversight. A small percentage is administration and the rest is programmatic. It's not about hand outs, the goal beyond feeding and providing lifesaving care and supplies is to teach health care providers and mothers and create locally sustainable projects that impact the health of infants, mothers and families in far reaching and intergenerational directions.

Rating: 5 stars  

IMA provides me with an opportunity to help a profoundly underserved population caught in the crosshairs and previously unable to get much needed assistance. International Midwife Assistance maximizes donations to provide food, healthcare, jobs and education to women, children and families. The clinic provides a paradigm of integrity, honesty and respect to people who have experienced a breakdown in their cultures. IMA provides health care and healing on individual and community levels, allowing a new generation to move forward with self respect and a vision of possibility for the future. i know that every dollar I donate will make a difference, lives will be saved, local health care providers will be educated allowing for ripples of healing further and further out into the community. Also, I love that the ultimate goal is self sufficiency for the clinic.

I love the integrity of this organization. I love how the funding is applied to the projects, with a minimum going into administration and the bulk providing direct care. I love the hands on careful management of the projects. IMA provides medicine, health care, food and jobs. But perhaps more importantly, IMA looks to provide projects which are a fit for the cultures in which they are located. And most importantly, IMA looks for exit strategies by which the local people can take over and function independently. These charitable dollars have far reaching effects. I hope to see the financial base secured, perhaps by endowments or more permanent funding structures.
