One of Covenant World Relief’s biggest values is our great partnerships with others. At the core, CWR is a partnering ministry – we choose to work in partnerships in order to better leverage human and financial resources.
We are excited by the possibility of a new partnership developing, but not between us and another group – between two of our own partners! CWR director Dave Husby has been exploring ways that two of CWR’s great partners, the Evangelical Covenant Church of South Sudan (ECCSS) and Medical Teams International (MTI), can work together.
Our hope is that the expertise of both organizations can be brought together. MTI has great medical experience, expertise and funding, while ECCSS has amazing connections to the most vulnerable in South Sudan, good local leadership, and a strong willingness and desire to partner with others. It is exciting to imagine what these two organizations can do when they partner together with their varying areas of expertise!
Currently, the capacity of ECCSS is being assessed to ensure that this is the best possible partnership for all of the involved groups. Pray that this can become a fruitful partnership, and that by working together, CWR, ECCSS, and MTI can better love, serve, and work together with the poor, the powerless, and the marginalized.
