Programs: ICA has four main programs (FOOD, HEALTH, HOME, and SAFE), which we have implemented in several countries including Pakistan, North Korea, Sudan, Cambodia, and Indonesia. We currently have programs in Ethiopia, Haiti, Afghanistan, Somaliland and soon the United States.

FOOD is our program to fight hunger and severe malnutrition. Since 2000, we have fed millions of people around the world. We are currently distributing food to more than 7,000 severely malnourished people every month.

HEALTH is our medical program, and it is primarily focused in Angacha, Ethiopia, where we opened a medical clinic in 2008. There, we treat an average of 3,000 people each month. As an effort to prevent illness, we have dug 15 water wells in and around the Angacha region of Ethiopia.

HOME is our program to care for orphans. We have one orphanage in Ethiopia for up to 60 young girls orphaned by HIV/AIDS. As a result of the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, we have been rebuilding an orphanage for more than 100 children that was destroyed in Leogane. We also have child sponsorship programs in Ethiopia ($35/month) and Haiti ($40/month). There are around 200 children enrolled in these programs, and many are still awaiting sponsorship.

Finally, SAFE is our program for rescue, shelter, and rehabilitation for victims of sex trafficking. ICA personally rescues girls from sex trafficking and provides a full rehabilitation program. Since 2007, we have established multiple Safe Homes worldwide. We have rehabilitated 145 girls age 4 years to 25 years old and have a high success rate. Our first U.S. based Safe Home for American girls who are victims of sexual exploitation is set to open in 2012.

These four programs are the main focus of International Crisis Aid, though we do disaster relief and community development as well.

Mission:
International Crisis Aids mission is to assist in sustaining life, bring encouragement to those suffering and collaborating with other relief organizations in bringing necessary foods, materials and medicines to people in times of crisis, particularly where life and death situations exist.

Additionally, we attempt to bring public awareness to these situations and to solicit citizen involvement whenever and wherever possible.

All assistance and resources are traditionally secured in the country of need when possible, so as to develop relations with the local business people and foster a true spirit of cooperation.

To accomplish this vision we will continue to target our efforts in no-go zones; where other organizations cannot or will not go. Frequently this means taking on escalated risks. We feel that these risks are a small price to pay in a game where the stakes are so high: literally, life and death.

To that end, we will continue to act as the primary delivery vehicle for outreach campaigns - a distribution system, partnered with other relief organizations to help those who live under some of the worst and most extreme conditions on earth.
