Care for orphans and hurting childrenread more
Five-year-old Ashish lost his father in the riots that killed many Christians in Orissa, India. He later saw his mother die of malaria in a relief camp. Now, he is being cared for in our new orphanage.
ICC is constantly monitoring the state of Christian persecution in countries around the world and looking for ways that we can act as bridge between our supporters and the persecuted church. Beyond our five central funds, we are working in many other areas to provide practical assistance to our brothers and sisters in Christ. Below are a few of our other projects:
To give to any of the below funds, unless otherwise noted, just type in the name of the fund of the "note" field and designate your gift as "Where Most Needed." Also feel free to call us and make a donation to any of these funds over the phone. You can reach our office at 1-800-422-5441.
Where Most Needed
Sometimes we encounter a situation that doesn't exactly fit under one of our other designated funds. For example, in one country we realized that the government was discriminating against elderly Christians in its distribution of social services. When we heard about it, we were able to use this fund to provide for this effort though it didn't fit under our other designated funds. Please make "where most needed" your first choice when you give. Donate.
Hand of Hope
Part of what makes ICC different from other nonprofits is that we strive to make sure that your donation goes where you want it to go - not into one big fund. That's part of the reason we created our "Hand of Hope" fund which allows you to give to a country or people of your choice. We can use these funds in the country of your choice to meet any need that may arise in that country - be it Bibles, support for imprisoned pastors or their wives, gospel broadcasts - anything we can do to help!
To give to this project, designate your funds to Where Most Needed and include a note indicating the country of your choice. Donate.
Your gift to this fund empowers churches to fight legal attacks meant to strangle the church. Jiang Tianyong was kidnapped by the Chinese government on February 19, 2011 and imprisoned in secret and tortured for two months. For Jiang’s family and others, ICC’s legal fund helps in funding lawyers and legal aid to help imprisoned Christians and their families fight for justice.
To give to this project, designate your gift as "where most needed" and include a note that says "legal." Donate.
Radio, Web and Television Broadcasts
Help us broadcast the gospel into the most dangerous parts of the world via radio, web, and TV. These mediums remain the most effective way to bring the gospel into Muslim or Communist countries where discipleship or evangelism can be a life-threatening activity. The gospel is exploding in the Middle East due to broadcasts like these. In many countries in North Africa and the Middle East, Muslims have few opportunities to hear the Gospel. To own or even read a Bible may be illegal or dangerous, so ICC supports satellite TV broadcasts. Through this method, God has brought millions of Muslims to Christ in the last 20 years.
"I praise God for your willingness to help me find the Truth, and for the love you showed me," said Amir, for Algeria. Amir found Christ through ICC's supported broadcasts and is now attending church, and is ready to be baptized.
To give to this project, designate your gift as "where most needed" and include a note that says "broadcast." Donate.
