Integral Alliance is pleased to welcome ZOA to Integral membership. ZOA was founded in 1973 and runs high quality, integrated programmes for people affected by conflict or disaster in more than 15 countries. They are based in The Netherlands ...
Allan Bussard Chair of the Integral Board, says: “I am very pleased to welcome ZOA into membership of the Integral Alliance. After a fairly lengthy process, done very carefully to ensure the right fit, the Integral Board of Directors has unanimously agreed that ZOA would bring very valuable experience and expertise to our network.
“ZOA’s 40 year history, extensive international experience, and wide donor and volunteer network mean that Integral is gaining as a new Member one of the most experienced Christian relief and development agencies in Europe. In particular, ZOA’s emphasis on Disaster Response followed by Rehabilitation will allow them to have a major contribution within one of Integral’s core strategic areas. We also believe that ZOA will be enriched by Integral membership, allowing for new areas of cooperation that could not have happened before.
“ZOA’s focus on the key areas of livelihoods, food security, water, sanitation and hygiene and basic education put them at the heart of good development practice. We look forward to many years of mutual enrichment!”
Johan Mooij, ZOA’s CEO says: “I look forward to being a Member of Integral and meeting the other CEO’s to discuss with them how we can better reach out to those in need. Although the world is in turmoil, God is doing wonderful things. The other day Food for the Hungry staff from Lebanon visited our office in Jordan to discuss ways for us to cooperate. There, and in other areas, I am sure ZOA will be able to continue its cooperation with other Integral Members.”
ZOA joining Integral brings the membership total to 23 Members with their headquarters in 14 countries.
