NEW YORK — Dr. Olusimbo Ige says that no single organization can address the needs of vulnerable women and children – the job is too big. That’s why partnerships are crucial if humanitarian efforts are to be effective.

Ige is the director for Global Health, United Methodist Board of Global Ministries, and was among the presenters of “Humanitarian and Faith-based Organizations Link Arms to Protect Vulnerable Women and Children” on April 2 at the Church Center for the UN.

Also presenting were Claus Grue of the World Council of Churches (WCC) and Caterina Tino of UNICEF. Each presenter brought a specific perspective that in combination with the others provided a big picture look at strategic partnerships in general and partnerships that propel faith and morality into action in particular.
