Global Integrity Day, 9 June 2021. The theme for this year is Corruption and Poverty. This special, annual day is a time to reflect, teach, and collaborate on ways to integrate integrity in all we do throughout the entire year. Moral care is part of member care. There is no health without moral health. #GlobalIntegrityDay
Member care focuses on staff wellbeing and effectiveness.
It is the ongoing investment of resources by sending groups, service organizations, and workers themselves, for nurture, development, and strategic impact.
Focuses on every person involved in mission including the health of sending groups.
It includes children, home office staff, and locals, nationals, and volunteers who are working in mission and sending groups themselves.
Includes preventative, developmental, supportive, and restorative care.
A core part is the mutual care that workers provide each other. Connecting with resources and people in the local community is also key.
Implements an adequate flow of care from recruitment through retirement.
Long term, life-cycle and mission work stages are integrated. Balancing suffering/sacrifice and support/strength are emphasized.
Develops workers’ skills, resilience, and virtue: their character and competence.
Wholistic care and growth are crucial: developing inner resources like stress management and providing external resources like team building.
Resources to support mission, humanitarian, and development personnel and their organisations
