What We Do

Bridging the Gap from Your Hand to Theirs

We combine four unique elements to efficiently deliver vital aid to those in greatest need.

Grassroots volunteers

who perform the vast majority of the work, allowing us to direct 99% of contributions to program services.

Local indigenous Christian ministers

who live and work in the regions they serve.

A common spirit

that unites them both: a shared Christian faith that bridges borders and cultures with a heart to help.

A singular focus

on helping children and their
families to survive and grow into self-sufficiency.

Over 30 Years of Aid

The International Children’s Fund has come to the aid of children in need worldwide since 1987. The monetary and material gifts of our donors have helped us distribute life-saving food, clothing, and medicine across the African continent and beyond. Gifts have also supported the construction of orphanages, churches, schools and vocational training centers, drilled water wells to provide safe drinking water, and established agricultural projects.

How We Help

Water Wells

Well digging operations through ICF spur local economies and provide meaningful changes to the communities these wells serve. Give clean water today.

Food

Balanced diets keep children and families healthy and improve quality of life. We work to provide the needed food for children across Africa.

Clothing

Partners around the world meet the tangible, daily need of clothing so often felt by children in the villages ICF works within.

Education

We create systemic educational infrastructure that brings hope to an entire generation of African children. A donation of $400 will allow a child to receive a quality education for one year.

Deworming Medication

Gifts help ICF alleviate the unnecessary suffering and health consequences of worms. This is one of the most common form of infections in humans and is 100% preventable with treatment.

Jigger Eradication

Providing medication that treats children and the products needed to rid villages of jigger infections is a practical way to remove an unneeded problem. Elderly tend to be the most affected.

Spiritual Transformation

We meet spiritual needs as well as physical needs through sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and consistent discipleship.

Orphanages 

Our work creating orphanages gives these children a loving and supportive community founded in God’s love. 

Mosquito Nets

The provision of mosquito nets provides a high impact resource to communities that prevents disease at an extremely low cost.
