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.

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've traveled to Haiti and the Dominican Republic with International Child Care several times. They do a great job of providing health care to at-risk children and families, including working with kids who have AIDS and TB. While the organization's Haiti program is dependent on outside financial resources, all of its employees are Haitians, and this impressed me. Despite severe damage and loss of life in the 2010 earthquake, they've managed to open temporary hospital facilities that are now serving thousands of patients. I was in Haiti 6 weeks after the earthquake, and the Haitian staff were caring for large numbers of patients and also providing space for food distribution. Very impressive.
