10/02/2023 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Displaced by the ruthless conflict ignited by the Allied Democratic Forces in Eastern Congo, a Christian family found solace in a refugee town. The harrowing tale of their flight from their hometown, marred by attacks that decimated their village, was etched in their memories.

To make matters worse, their daughter, Justine, was struck by a fever at four years old that stole her speech and mobility.

After hearing of the family’s tribulations, ICC extended a helping hand and provided Justine with a wheelchair – the key to unlocking Justine’s world, offering her the gift of movement and autonomy.

The family’s gratitude overflowed; their hearts touched not only by tangible support but the hope of a brighter future. Her mother told ICC, “I am very happy and I thank ICC for all they have done for my child Justine…God bless ICC. Don’t forget to pray for us in this country, because many people are suffering. Pray for us so peace can be restored. My family and I, we are refugees here. God bless you so much.”

After implementing the project, ICC staff received miraculous news from the family. “Justine is improving slowly by slowly. There is hope in the coming days, to walk herself.”
