Review for International Crisis Aid Inc, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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

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

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.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
