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.
