on the 16th of February, a Dutch company named HZPC from the little town of Joure, Netherlands, donated 5,000 Kilograms of seed potatoes to the ICC Dutch office, Internationale Kinderhulp (IKN). A further blessing occurred when the van Wierden transportation company delievered the potatoes free of charge.  These potatoes will be transported to the ICC children’s village in Romania where they will be planted in early March.  At the end of this summer, ICC Romania hopes to reap a bountiful harvest. Part of the harvest will go for the foodprogram and the other part will be sold.

Besides the agriculture program in Romania, construction is also underway for a commercial bakery. Throughout the projects of ICC, efforts are underway to help projects become more self-sufficient. Primarily this is being done through agriculture and small industries such as bakeries.  If you share our belief that this is important and wish to help support this inititiative, please contact the ICC office at 800-ICC-PRAY for further information.
