Frequently Asked Questions
International Aid Relaunch
What is changing?
Effective November 1, 2022, International Aid will re-establish itself as a separate, Christian nonprofit organization, no longer incorporated within CURE International, that will provide direct assistance to those suffering from natural disasters or humanitarian crises around the world.
Why is this change occurring?
Both the CURE board and the newly established IA board believe that God can use IA to respond to immediate crises all over the world, a role it is not currently filling. This transition will enable International Aid to focus on its expanded mission, providing hope and support for more people in more places when they need it most.
How will this change or impact CURE’s operations?
This change will not impact CURE’s operations. CURE will continue to serve children all over the world who are suffering from treatable disabilities at its hospitals. No employment status will change.
Is International Aid going to retain its Christian values?
Yes, International Aid’s mission will be to glorify Christ by responding to humanitarian crises and natural disasters in the United States and around the world.
Who will be leading International Aid?
International Aid will be led by a new board of directors chaired by J.C. Huizenga, based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
What will International Aid be doing in the future?
International Aid will focus on providing emergency supplies (food, water, shelter, etc.) to people who have been affected by natural disasters and humanitarian crises.
Where will International Aid be based?
Grand Rapids, Michigan. International Aid has deep roots in West Michigan and will continue to operate from this area.
