IA ships $116 million of aid in past year

International Aid has shipped more than $116 million of health products and medical equipment over the past 12 months. This amount of aid is a record high for the 30-year-old Christian relief organization, IA officials said, and represents a 123-percent increase from the average amount of aid shipped by International Aid over the previous seven years.

“We are amazed by what God has accomplished at our ministry,” International Aid CEO Brian Anderson said. “Our desire is to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ by meeting the physical needs of the suffering, and God really opened doors to have that done this past year.”

This week’s announcement comes two years after news broke that International Aid would be ceasing operations in July 2009, following a period of economic strife. However, the ministry — founded in 1980 — instead underwent a season of transition and reducing its staff, and narrowing its focus to supplying health products and reconditioned medical equipment to partners serving in areas of greatest need.

“To go from having announced our doors were closing in June 2009 to sending over $185 million of aid in the past two years is nothing short of miraculous,” Anderson said.
