Our family has had the privilege of being a part of iCOR for 9 years. During that time, we have volunteered at the base in Zaragoza and seen first hand the exceptional commitment of the leadership and staff. Karina has a love and caring spirit that we have never seen before. The children benefit greatly from nutrition to physical and mental care and spiritual direction. We believe they are kept from harm’s way daily; a great and rewarding task. Recently, we have seen beneficial improvements to the facility and programs. We’re excited to see iCOR grow in the future!

Our family has supported iCOR for many years, seeing the work they do is crucial in safeguarding the welfare of these at-risk children, their families and their community. The founder, staff, and board of directors of iCOR are selflessly dedicated to ministering to the "least of these" in El Salvador.

I have been involved with this organization for the last 9 years. They are having a major impact in the area of Zaragoza, El Salvador via a "Kids at Risk" Center serving the community. I can't say enough about this great organization! I've visited and served at the facility during an a trip in 2010, and each year 2013-2018 (and planning to continue annual trips in the future).

My wife and I have visited Icor in Zaragoza, El Salvador on two occasions. Each time we have been blessed to interact with the children, work on the building and grounds, and pray with the staff. While the children's circumstances can be heart-breaking, they come with big hearts and big smiles for food, schooling, and personal time with the dedicated workers. All of this is done in a safe facility in the heart of the city which it serves. The mayor of the city, and the wife of the Vice-President of the country lend their enthusiastic support, asking how can this ministry grow and take more children. We support two children on a monthly basis, and contribute to special projects as they arise. The fruit of this ministry is abundant and sweet. We whole-heartedly endorse this ministry, and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to positively effect and change children's lives in El Salvador.

A very great organization. Money goes straight to the kids. Teach them about Jesus and feed them. Keep them safe in a gang torn area. Please give if you have a chance. Do a monthly sponsorship and feed a child for $50 :-)
