I have been working with ICA since 2004 and been a donor of ICA since 2008. From top to bottom ICA is run with integrity and is the type of organization I am proud to be associated with. They are always more worried about helping others, before they think about themselves. It is also nice that they do work in the US and internationally. They realize that making the world a better place requires a global view.

The Great!

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

When we received pictures of the children we sponsor monthly and saw that we and ICA are making a difference in their lives. It is great to know that the money donated to ICA goes to the right places.

I have volunteered with many organizations here in the states and have spent time as a volunteer with a larger non-profit organization, but none can compare to the passion,commitment,and transforming power that ICA delivers. From feeding programs,to child sponsorship,to their medical clinic and their rescuing of countless girls trapped in the horrors of sex trafficking, ICA is an organization that truely transforms the lives of those they help with dignity and preservation. Pat and Sue Bradley are full of compassion, integrity, and pursue their commitment to sustaining life in areas of crisis with an unyeilding strength. I have personally seen the transformation of those this organization has touched. I have been given the privledge to speak with young, terrified girls unsure of even their own shadow and see them blossom into captivating women, who are ready to go out and make a difference in the lives of others continuing the chain of love and security that they have recieved.

The Great!

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

After hearing first hand the horrors experienced by those rescued by ICA from the deplorable and uncomprehensible sex trade, I have truely been broken, yet filled with the overpowering emotion of seeing lives transformed by ICA's efforts to bring safety.

Ways to make it better...

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

There are none. The only thing that ICA needs is more advocates and donors to understand the life sustaining aid that ICA brings to so many.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The opportunity to be transformed myself, to be broken, humbled, to have been able to give as well as to have recieved true and unconditional love.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

A-W-E-S-O-M-E ! From Jennifer, here in the USA, who is able to inspire anyone she meets, to Betty and Dr. Henok, Ethiopians, who are unrelentless in their work, to the rest of the Ethiopian staff who are full of love and dedication I cannot say enough.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a new hospital in Angatcha helping hundreds of women and their children. They could open more safehouses and rescue more girls from a life of destitution in the filthy and dangerous sextrade.

Ways to make it better...

My mission was laid out before me in such a way that I knew what needed to be done, and all of the resources were supplied to help me by an Ethiopian staff full of passion and committment. I wouldn't have changed a thing.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding, with more funds, the good that ICA could do would be unfathomable.

One thing I'd also say is that...

My heart has been captivated by the love shown to me by both the staff and those that ICA has helped. I will be a lifelong supporter and advocate of ICA becuase of the integrity I have seen first hand. This is one organization worth recognizing.

We hosted a anual patient appreciation day at our office and ICA was the organization that all of the proceeds went to from that day. They set up a booth in our office and not only were they very informative but they connected with several different people and made them very proud to be a part of helping with all of the work that ICA does. We have worked with other Non-profit organizations and and ICA is the standard by which non-profit excellence should be measured. They were extremely professional in their dealings with every one in our office. We just want to say thanks to ICA for giving us an opportunity to help.

I was lucky enough to be able to work with ICA on three different occasions in Ethiopia. I was able to see ICA support people in helping people to help themselves to support theirselves. It was amazing to watch them in action and to be a part of it. I also was able to meet some girls rescued off the streets and given the means to expand themselves. The joy and relief on their faces are priceless. I feel such an honor to know ICA,see them in action and have been a part of such a blessing.

I love this organization. They do a great deal of work with rescuing women/young people from the horrors of sex trafficking. I see many of the photos that come from the field and I can see the changes in the girls faces as they are given a new life and a safe place to stay. Some have children and they will also have an opportunity for a happy life. In addition, the work they are doing to help feed families and provide medical care for them is incredible. Many times they go to the hard to reach areas where people are desperate for help. This is a solid, focused organization and they have my vote - A+!

ICA is an amazing organization. They first caught my eye at a school organization convention. I had never heard of sex trafficking before and I defintely didn't know how rampant it is. Through my school we raised money to help support the ICA SAFE homes for girls rescued from sex trafficking. ICA was so helpful in sending us information and even sent a speaker to our school for no cost. It is such an amazing thing to see an organzation speak for those girls who have no voice. ICA is love, plain and simple. Wherever there is a great need, ICA is there to provide for the people.

The Great!

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

Advocasy is one thing that ICA is all about. If you asked anyone of the junior high or highschool kids in my school what sextrafficking is, they would all be able to answer. Why? Because ICA took the time to send a speaker and send us tons of information.

I really can't think of anything more. When a need arises they meet it.

Save more girls from sex trafficking.

I lived closer to the headquarters so I could volunteer.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of funds.

International Crisis Aid is one of the many non-profit aid orginizations I have worked with around the world. In more than 20 years of traveling to underdeveloped nations and working with numerous aid orginizations I have not come across any that compares to the integrity of ICA. International Crisis Aid has been so effective in their management of funds and people that they are able to move into areas of crisis and bring immeadiate relief amidst human suffering. I have personally seen many of their feeding programs in operation and have witnessed the before and after results of their outreach programs. Countless thousands of children, mothers and families have been literally saved from malnutrition and starvation. Many more have received medical help, including expensive surgical procedures. The efforts of International Crisis Aid to end child sex trafficking has been so successful in Ethiopia and Cambodia that they can now be used as a role model to other orginizations who wish to do the same. They are even currently working with the FBI to set up the first of many, planned in the United States. They are litterally transforming lives as they go into some of the most dangerous places on the planet and rescue girls whom society has thrown away. Their safe houses are not only a safe refuge, but a place of hope and restoration as once shattered young lives are now gaining hope, medical help and education to become productive, respectable citizens. There is no better place to invest your money to help others than in International Crisis Aid. Your funds go directly to the programs and the people who need it most.

I walked into the red light district in Addis Ababa & watched the Founder of ICA talk to girls trapped in prostitution. He offered a way out & provided them a new life. I met with many girls who had previously been rescued & are now completely transformed

Ways to make it better...

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

Quadruple the current staff and find more funding so that Pat Bradley and his International Crisis Aid orginization could fulfill all of their current and future goals.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their integrity is second to none. They use their funds to provide maximum relief.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff and volunteers I have met were all very passionate about accomplishing the various outreaches of ICA. As well as friendly, respectful and always thinking of others first.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open a new hospital in Angatcha, Ethiopia. Save another half million starving people in their feeding programs, rescue another 500 girls out of sex trafficking and create a whole new self supporting village of safe houses for victims of sex trafficking.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to help with their outreaches.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding!! With more money they could help so many more.

One thing I'd also say is that...

International Crisis Aid is an outstanding non-profit orginization that truly is a model for how an aid orginization should be run.

ICA has raised the awareness of many of us in Missouri of the tremendous need for programming to address the issue of human trafficking of American girls. This is a need that many of us who have been in children and family services for many hears had not really taken the time to consider. ICA not only has the concern, but has developed programming in other countries to address this issue in those places. Because of its reputation and success, it has been asked to provide programming in the states to help American children caught up in this dreadful situation. We commend ICA for its leadership and continuing role in meeting this need.

I first became interrested in International Crisis Aid (ICA) thru a friend who had spent a summer working with them in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She took bio's and pictures of children for the sponsorship program. When I saw the pictures, heard the stories, I knew the time had come when I could no longer turn the channel or page away from the images because it hurt too much to view it. My husband and myself picked a child to sponsor encourage others to do so. After going online and researching, we were/are able to recommend International Crisis Aid as an NGO who uses ALL donations properly. They have a very small staff and at least 90 cents out of every dollar goes toward the programs. In October of 2009, we were able to be part of a trip to Ethiopia. We saw how ICA is using every donation to make a difference. The feeding program at Medical CLinic that most of the people walked at least 10 miles to get to. This clinic is the only source of help/hope for too many miles to count. This clinic is being run at such a high standard that it is rated higher than most hospitals in Ethiopia. How can I begin to explain what the experience of helping to feed starving people is? I can say that each person who received food thru ICA was treated with the utmost respect and care. During the week I was able to work along side Pat Bradley the founder of ICA and staff members. At the clinic, orphanage, girls homes and while we were going thru the Red Light District, you can see what a difference ICA has made in lives in Ethiopia. For the girls at the orphanage, ICA has given them a safe place to grow, learn and develop into strong women who will make a difference in their country. For the girls rescued from the Red Light District, ICA has given them a safe home for themselves and their children. They no longer have to sell their bodies. They are being taught skills that will enable them to work at a occupation they are proud of. To build a life that is free and full of hope. For the people who now have a safe, clean Health Clinic, ICA is the difference between life and death. For the child or family that will eat today that didn't yesterday, ICA is truely all that stands certain starvation. For each of us that went in October, we will forever be changed because we see what love can do. As a Christian, I believe ICA is truely loving others as Jesus loved/loves us.

The Great!

The peace it has given me to know that thru International Crisis Aid I can make a difference in the life of someone.
