Reviews for International Child Care USA Inc
I have volunteered with International Child Care raising money for their causes and have gone to Haiti to the their flagship ministry, Grace Children's Hospital. I am amazed with how well they utilize the resources that we raise for them to impact the lives of literally 150,000+ people a year in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. I personally know a number of their staff and board members and know them to be outstanding individuals working hard with great integrity. As an example of resources being applied efficiently, the attached photo is a (low quality) shot of the CPR training mannequins purchased by our church being used in Haiti for training in July 2016.

As a board member and volunteer, I have worked with ICC for around 10 yrs now, and traveled to Haiti with them at least 1-2 times/year. The US staff is helpful and works hard to see that funds are used with good stewardship in mind, putting the needs of the children of Haiti and the Dominican Republic above all else. I have been particularly impressed witht he dedication of the Haitian and Dominican Health Care workers who work for ICC to provide care for their patients even when resources are slim. The workers in Haiti worked non-stop during the weeks following the earthquake providing care for both their patients as well as those in the community. The Dominicans worked to help the Haitians following the earthquake, and have continued to provide care for all the disabled kids they help, with reduced budgets due to having to help their Haitian colleagues. One of my colleagues referred to Grace Children's Hospital as "the little hospital that could" which I think aptly describes a place that provides top notch care with very few resources. I can only hope to do as well as my Haitian and Dominican colleagues....
