Making a Difference
With your help, the International Children’s Fund provides more than 1 million meals per year to desperately poor children and their families. We buy rice, beans, meat products, gari, cornmeal, sugar and powdered milk locally.
We supplement these local purchases with food shipped from the US and increasingly with food that is grown or raised within our missions.
I would like to introduce you to Nakate. Tragically, Nakate’s husband was killed in a vehicle accident leaving her alone to care for their 7 children. To make matters even worse, there was a terrible drought which killed all the crops and Nakate and her children contracted malaria.
Nakate was sick, helpless, and weak from starvation. In her own words “I saw death coming for me – it knocked on my door. I worried for my children”. Then Pastor Peterson arrived. He provided food, medicine, and mosquito nets to Nakate and the other villagers.
Had he not arrived when he did, the family and many other villagers would have continued to suffer and possibly die from starvation.
ICF supports countless programs providing livestock, gardening supplies, and micro-commerce to families around the globe allowing them to lift themselves out of poverty and starvation.
Long Term Solutions for Resources
Distributing food, medicine, and supplies to desperately poor children and their families is part of the mission of ICF. We have been doing this for more than 40 years. Although food distribution is needed, we feel that the best long-term solution to solving this hunger crisis is through education, skills training, and providing opportunities for families to become self-sufficient.
Update on the Girls College
We are pleased to report that the construction of the Girls College in Monrovia continues to progress according to schedule. The exterior of the second floor is nearly complete and we will begin the third floor soon. Please visit our website for regular project updates on this exciting project which will change the lives of tens of thousands of young women in Liberia.
God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10

Become a Hope Ambassador
It can be easy to skim past this verse, but the historical context of an “ambassador” brings a wealth of meaning. Such ambassadors or delegates, whether Jewish or Greco-Roman, came with the authority of the sender, in his place, to secure his interests. The reality is, God is making his appeal through us, and wants to secure His very own interests.
