The boat’s propeller broke and the captain lost control. Somehow in the storm, Samuel fell overboard. Although Samuel was wearing a life jacket, the storm was so fierce that no one could save him. The captain jumped in to try to save him and nearly lost his own life…

You will leave a lasting legacy in the life of an orphan child by including ICC in your will or trust.

For more information, please contact Doug Congleton at ICC either by phone or email.


ICC Logo None of this work would be possible without those who have committed their efforts to saving and changing the lives of “His Kids.” The children of ICC want to thank you from the bottom of their hearts for making a difference in their lives.

Occasionally when we call for funds for a specific need we receive more in donations than we requested. In those instances when we have received more money than we solicited, those funds will be placed in “Alcyon’s Angel Fund.”
