IOCC Celebrates 26 Years:  

Inspired by Faith, Driven by Purpose

On March 10, 1992, Orthodox Christian leaders came together to form International Christian Charities (IOCC) to be a hand of compassion reaching out to those in need in times of war, civil unrest, natural disaster, and economic hardship.  IOCC is the official humanitarian relief agency of the Assembly of Canonical Bishops of the United States of America. Since their first airlift to Russia in 1992, IOCC has grown into a professional relief and development agency serving people in more than 60 countries by providing over $600 million in program services.
IOCC, in the spirit of Christ’s love, offers emergency relief and development programs to those in need worldwide, without discrimination and strengthens the capacity of the Orthodox Church to so respond.
