ICC no longer affiliated with ICC Australia

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

This is to clarify that since 2014 International Children’s Care (ICC), with headquarters in Vancouver, Washington, which started in 1978, is no longer affiliated with the group in Australia doing business as International Children’s Care Australia (ICCA).

ICCA was started, funded and operated by ICC, but the ICC Board of Trustees voted in 2013 to cut ties with ICCA. This was after unsuccessful attempts to renew a Memorandum of Understanding between the two organizations due to differing operating philosophies and practices. ICC also informed ICCA that ICC no longer authorized the use of the ICC name or logo. International Children’s Care is a legally trademarked name in the USA, and we hope to avoid confusion by the Australia group changing their name and logo.

Flooding in The Philippines

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Some of you may have seen the news reports about the severe flooding that occurred last month in the Philippines as a result of tropical storm Haikui, Typhoon Saola and the heavier than average annual monsoons. ICC’s children’s village was impacted as two of the houses in the children’s village were affected by flood water. The bridge and front gates were also washed away.

Fortunately the children are safe. Praise the Lord. The school provided shelter for some of the indigenous families from the community.
