New aid alliance

In March 2010, Action by Churches Together International, an alliance to which the ELCA belongs, will unite with Action by Churches Together Development.

The new organization will be called the ACT Alliance.

Both groups are Geneva-based and have similar backers (150 agencies and churches — mainly Protestant and Orthodox).

The new alliance will draw upon more than $2 billion and 40,000 paid and volunteer staff.
