Welcome New InterAction Members

Not only did we kickoff InterAction’s Forum with three former heads of state, InterAction had the privilege of welcoming eight new organizations into our membership. These newest members truly represent the breadth and depth of both InterAction’s work and the work of our collective NGO community, from providing medical supplies to humanitarian projects worldwide to supporting clean water projects in Ethiopia to advocating for the democratization of international development finance.

It is my pleasure to introduce InterAction’s eight new members:

Bank Information Center

The Bank Information Center envisions a world in which development works for people and the planet. The Bank Information Center advocates for social, ecological and economic justice by amplifying local voices and democratizing international development finance. 

Embrace Relief

Embrace Relief coordinates and provides the necessities and sustenance to the disadvantaged and disaster-stricken individuals and groups particularly those without means, such as food, clothing, housing, education, skill training, and counseling. Embrace Relief dedicates its resources to aid efforts such as natural disasters, as well as relieving hunger and health problems. Embrace Relief, its staff, and its volunteers believe that every member of society can give back to their communities in any shape or form, within a pleasant and respectful environment free from judgment and discrimination.

Gleaning For the World
