Mission: International aid glorifies christ by providing medical and health resources to global partners serving peope in need.
Programs: Health products and disaster relief: access to non-equipment products such as over-the-counter and prescription medicines, nutritional supplements and personal care items play a key role in health care systems. International aid's goal is to excel in directing health products from socially responsible corporations to humanitarian organizations with great ministry opportunity. International aid responds to disasters around the world. With the help of our local partners and donors, we are able to support the rebuilding efforts for people in greatest need. International aid's emergency response goals are to support other in first response, to replenish medical equipment and supplies, to focus on rebuilding efforts to restore the area, and finally to prevent disease with portable medical labs and hygiene kits. In fy15 we received donated health products valued at approximately $85m from 54 different donors and shipped to 43 different humanitarian organizations working in 21 different countries.
medical equipment: international aid serves as a critical link between equipment donor and recipients to guarantee equipment donations are ready to use. The organization is one of the largest refurbishers of medical equipment in the non-profit world, providing anything from anesthesia machines to x-ray equipment. The organization helps hospitals in developing nations attain self-sufficiency in equipment operations by supplying them with new and refurbished medical equipment, operations manuals and technical field support. Additionally, international aid offers assessments for hospitals and medical centers preparing to expand or enhance current operations. Onsite evaluations, recommendations for next steps and a list of needed resources are provided. Lastly, medical professionals in remote areas lack access to proper equipment and accurate diagnosis is nearly impossible. Ia's solution is a portable lab capable (lab-in-a-suitcase) capable of being powered by solar energy and able to provide accurate and immediate results. The lab is perfect for short term medical missions teams, rural clinics and hospitals, community health surveys, and government ministry of health. In fy15 we received donated medical equipment and supplies valued at approx. $2m from 17 donors and shipped to 118 humanitarian organizations working in 55 different countries.
