“I’ve Got to Talk to You!”
“I need to tell you how thankful I am!”

If it weren’t for caring donors like you, what would have happened to a little Dominican girl we’ll call Constanza? When Constanza was young, her father died. Her mother was poor and had a mental illness. She could not provide the care that Constanza needed…

Matching Grant—Limited Time!
Education provides a pathway out of poverty. Education is critical for a child who has been orphaned. Even in developing countries it’s costly providing an Adventist education. Any gift you give until October 15 will become a DOUBLE BLESSING!

YOUR Support of Orphan Children is Vital!
It’s no secret to any of us at ICC that this ministry would simply not be possible if it wasn’t for the faithful financial and prayer support that YOU continue to give. Not only on a monthly basis, but year after year.

This is about the incredible effect that YOU—and other donors like you—are having on the lives of the children you support through your gifts!

Q & A with Rick Fleck, President of ICC
Your support of ICC’s children is having a lasting effect upon them. In the following interview with ICC President, Rick Fleck, you’ll find a more in-depth perspective of the work being done on behalf of the children.

Q: The news is filled with political debate this election season as well as conflicts in various parts of the world. There seems to be little news concerning the plight of orphans. Is orphan care still a world-wide problem?

$1 donated = up to $5 worth of supplies!
The children of Las Palmas in the Dominican Republic need important supplies. While we’ve been promoting a container shipment and gathering supplies, unfortunately we’ve not yet received all the needed items. We’ve delayed the container a little while longer in the hope that you—or someone you know—may be able to help.

Visit the ICC website to download the current list of needed supplies. We also need funds to cover the costs of shipping the container to Las Palmas. It’s great way to get a big return on your investment because $1 donated can send up to $5 in supplies.

You may ship the items to, or drop them by the ICC office, at 2711 NE 134th Way, Vancouver, WA 98686. If you prefer sending in a donation to help purchase an item or items please designate your gift with the item’s name and “Las Palmas Shipment.” Thank you very much for helping send these supplies to the kids!

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

A Legacy Of Love
–Providing for the Future through planned giving–

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.”
