By the grace of God,I (Rev.Boakai B.Paasewe of the Living Word Rural Ministries) have been partnering with ICF over 8 years .I'm so thankful to God for divinely connecting us with them and empowering us in helping to build schools ,churches, providing safe drinking water,building orphanage and reaching out with shipments of relief items to needy communities and institutions in the city and rural communities.The relief items such as food ,medical supplies,vehicles,clothing, and Christmas gifts are great blessings, transforming lives and building brighter future for thousands of unprivileged rural children and meeting the current needs of Ebola victims' children in communities that have been badly hit by this deadly viral disease. International Children Fund serves with love, integrity and humility. I am greatly honored to support ICF!

What a fantastic and inspiring organization! This summer several of our volunteers had the opportunity to attend an I.C.F. Brat Fry. Not only did we have the chance to observe their process, but to witness their passion and dedication in doing God's work. It was truly heartwarming to see how we in part, are able to help this cause. We could not be more proud or honored to work with such a wonderful organization. De Pere Christian Outreach

Love this charity! I am very careful about what charities I support. I want the money I give to be used for those who truly need it and not to those in charge . There is too much of that in a lot of charities.
I have seen the warehouse and office that ICF works out of. It is very basic. No frills at all. I have checked on Charity Navigator and was pleased to see almost one hundred percent of what I give goes to those in need. That's what I call a topnotch organization! I not only give money but volunteer when I can.

ICF is a wonderful organization that puts the needs of others first. They not only send food, clothing, medical supplies and more but most importantly they have partners in Africa that expose the people they are helping to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I am thankful that I can afford to send a contribution to people in need. So it was very important to me to be sure that the money I send is not being used for anything but that! I checked Charity Navigator and when I read that ICF has a 5 star rating that verified that this was an excellent organization.
I have had the opportunity to visit the warehouse from where the items are sent. I have seen the small two person office in this old warehouse. Instead of spending money given to them on improving their working conditions they give to those much less fortunate. This is an excellent organization!

I have been with ICF over 20 years and there never seems to be a dull moment. The things that the org does to help the needy is overwelming to me sometimes in that I don't know how we get the work done with such a small amount of volunteers! It is a real JOY to get a call from the office and hear "we have a container to load can you be available on such and such a day? I can't wait to get down and meet with the guys... I am so blessed to be a part of this truely Godly ministery and the things we are able to get done with the support of our donors....

ICF started with a committed man who had a vision to help people around the world and it just so happened the Lord spoke to him about Africa.... The rest is history. He has been at it well over 35 years and and with the dedicated volunteers, there is no stopping him until Jesus comes home to take him or we are all carried out in the rapture. I personally have been with the organization for about 20 years.... Wouldn't change a thing!!!!!!

I have been with the organization since 2007. It has been a pleasure and a true blessing to see the faces that have been helped and to get to know first hand the partners ICF works with overseas. I especially love that over 98% of every dollar given goes directly to those we serve. What other organization can say that? Trust is key and donors can believe that their support is truly making a difference in countless lives.

Lori and Dr. Dave are exceptional stewards of the donations received by International Children's Fund. Having worked with them for the past decade, I am truly amazed at their commitment to helping those in need.......the time, energy, passion and love with which they carry out their mission inspires both the volunteers and the recipients of their good works.
May God bless and watch over them as they continue to carry out his vision of service to others.

I have had the pleasure of working with Lori and Dr Dave as a partner in the execution of ICF's direct mail programs over the past 4 years. I am not only impressed by the incredible faith, compassion and sacrifice of these two wonderful human beings, but have also become a donor by designating a significant portion of our annual family giving to ICF. Lori and Dave, along with their dedicated team of volunteers, set a wonderful example of how an organization dedicated to serving others should be run.
They are truly doing God's work on earth and are angels among us.

This organization is my favorite non-profit!! I would trust them with anything and I have seen first hand only some of the things they have done for people not only in Africa and Haiti but locally as well. I can't imagine all they have done for people world-wide. I have the utmost respect for International Children's Fund and it's workers/ volunteers/ donors and I don't see any other organizations stepping up as much as they have.
