I have been bringing church groups to encounter ICC and it's holistic health ministry since 1989. I like to lift up ICC as an example of an NGO whom donors can trust to be good stewards of their gifts. The emphasis on hiring Haitians and Dominicans has helped them to endure the tragedies of grinding poverty, hurricanes, military coups, and the earthquake. ICC's preventative and curative health care is a model for other NGO's to follow, which the World Health Organization and other respected groups have recognized. ICC has gained and kept my trust and respect for all these years, and I look forward to introducing it to more people in the future.

This is one of the best nonprofit organizations! They have been helping a lot of kids among the DR and Haiti. They have succeed due to their effort in getting support for the children. I sincerely bless them and wish them the best in order for them to keep helping those kids who really need a friendly hand!

Myself and my church have been supporting ICC for years. ICC is dedicated to bringing hope to children and families in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, a cause that is desperately needed for that island. I have been to both Haiti and the Dominican Republic, and can attest to their mission. If you are looking for an organization that you can trust is doing the work it says, support ICC.

I went to Haiti on a church mission trip and it changed my life. Meeting the poor, sick Haitian children in the inpatient ward has inspired me to continue to help the struggling nation. Keep up the good work ICC, Haiti needs you.

International Child Care is truly a blessing to the clients it serves. Children and families who live in unimaginable conditions are treated with respect and dignity in an environment designed to heal both their physical and emotional wounds. ICC has been in Haiti nearly 50 years doing amazing work. They are worthy of my donations because I know lives are being saved.

I was intially introduced to International Child Care (ICC) as a child over 40 years ago when I travelled to haiti with my late father to visit family and he insisted that we visited Grace Children's Hospital run by ICC. For over 45 years ICC through Grace Children's Hospital and pediatric clinics throughout Haiti and the Dominican Republic has successfully delivered treatment to poor children seriously ill with Tuberculsis, HIV/AIDS, Cholera and other ailments. They have offered prenatal services to expecting mothers. They have also provided preventitive treatment to children through vaccinations and other treatment.

After losing contact with ICC in my early adult years, I reconnected with ICC after I made a donation to ICC with funds collected as donations at my father's funeral 10 years ago. I was presently surprised that ICC had sustained their work in Haiti over time. Many NGOs had come and gone in Haiti during the decades that ICC continued offering their services to the children in need.

ICC distinguishes itself from other non for profits because it operates efficiently with a small staff in the U.S. and productively with a Haitian staff delivering services in Haiti. Of the dollar donated, the vast majority goes towarss the delivery of services in lieu of funding administration.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Broaden the target donor community.

ICC is a very highly-rated non-profit organization. I had the opportunity to travel to Haiti with a group for the first time in 2012, and for me it was a life-changing experience. Meeting the doctors, nurses and staff at Grace Children's Hospital, playing with the children and seeing Port-Au-Prince first-hand was heart-warming, fascinating and at times tragic as you see the vast poverty and need throughout Haiti. Grace Children's Hospital is staffed completely by Haitians which deeply impressed me. Although the hospital is now in temporary quarters, they do a wonderful job of treating thousands of children and their families as well as providing services such as health education and counseling. I found the staff to be very caring and friendly. International Child Care is certainly an outstanding organization and Grace Children's Hospital is making a very real and positive difference in Haiti.

I am very impressed with the work ICC is doing in Haiti and DR. Join us as we make a positive impact on children! The School of Nursing will be rebuilt and will make a difference in the future of those who live in Haiti and DR.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing the impact of our volunteers on the children and the nursing school

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get nationwide support
