September 20, 2015 at 10.00 am the group arrived at ICC Philippines. The program started with prayer by Brother Jun Mallorca ICCP Marketing Manager and followed by the inspirational message then the games which the children enjoyed so much. The most awaited was the lucnh sponsored by Christian Couple Circle Pasay City Chapter (CCC).
The most exciting was the distribution of shoes and toys. Every kids receive the shoes including indigent children in the community beside ICCP campus.
Ma’am Keena de Castro who coordinated to Pastor Pedrito G. Magallanes for the visit of the group. They plan to be back by this coming December 2015.
God bless you, as you allowed yourself to be the channel of blessing from our God.
Last February 25, 2015. Pastor Joshua Castillo and his family from Adventist University of the Philippines (AUP) Academy Silang, Cavite to International Children’s Care Philippines (ICCP) Pampanga to share the birthday celebration of his son to the ICCP kids. An average of 4 hours long drive just to do feeding and gift giving for the destitute children here in the orphanage. They enjoyed the trip because of their love for the orphan kids.
Pastor said that “I know ICCP because my brother was the first bookkeeper here. He added that this is the application of what we are always talking from the Bible in the writing of Matthew chapter 25. The practical service for Jesus”.
Sharing of what we have is the actual demonstration of our love to those who are in need. We will just remember what Jesus said “Come who are blessed, inherit the kingdom which I prepare for you because when I was hungry you feed me, when I was naked you clothed me, when I was sick you visited me.
We are inviting everyone to donate for the cause of the orphans who are in need. The poorest among the poor. The very least. You can give directly to ICC Philippines Foundation Inc. Please contact us in this email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Last Saturday March 28, 2015 at almost 2 o’clock in the afternoon International Children’s Care Philippines (ICCP) got lots of visitors. They were TAU GAMMA PHI (TRESKELION) fraternity and sorority organization of DE LASALLE STATE UNIVERSITY AND LETRAN Manila Chapter. Their organization conducted Medical Mission and Gift Giving to the Aetas, ICC families, and other indigent families/individuals nearby ICCP campus.
To open their program Sir Jhun Mallorca rendered a prayer. Then, one of their women shared her testimony on how she survived in spite of being sexually abused by her uncle. Although she felt hopeless, still, she continued on living by the grace of God. When she met Jesus she learned that there is one God who loves her. She added that “next year I will take Bachelor of Science in Social Work and fortunately if I finish such course I promise to return to ICCP”. It is such a challenging testimony!
Another lady led the fun games and the crowd enjoyed it so much. People were so busy. The Gift Giving and Medical Mission went on simultaneously. The Tau Gamma Phi group was very happy giving their services and the whole crowd of recipients was very happy, too. Lots of gifts were distributed. Everyone got a packed bag of canned goods, noodles, and set of hygiene needs, toys and clothes. Cavans of rice, sports equipments, baby wipes, milk, 2 wheel chairs and 1 nebulizer were also given. They also gave medicine packs to each patient.
It was really a great blessing to ICCP, the Aetas, and to the whole community as well. Sitio Bucaran praises God for such people with BIG HEARTS. Thus, the ICCP would like to extend her heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the enormous hearts of TAU GAMMA PHI (TRESKELION) led by Mr. Edmund O. Paule, Alumni of TGP for supporting ICCP leading toward the better life of every individual. Keep up your good works, never stop helping. Our Almighty Father guides and blesses your lives, this is our prayer. Amen.
ICCP welcomes anyone who wants to extend a helping hand to change a child’s life toward a better future. Please send message to email@example.com.

Rach Paola- Two months of being a volunteer here at International Children’s Care Philippines Foundation and at ICC blessed home project. Left last Monday February 9, 2015. It was the loneliest time for her and for the children because it was the time to go home. While taking picture the tears can’t be stopped. The children didn’t want to LET HER GO but everything has an end. They just need to wait for her coming back.
“Back in Australia it’s good to be back after a while. Had the deepest sleep last night! …think it’s the post travel hype wearing off haha.
Impossible to sum up the last 2 months in just a FB status, but the main things I’ll say was thing is that it was simply incredible. Learnt SO much, felt SO humbled; in MANY ways. I know I saw and experienced TRUE beauty, for what it REALLY is. Constantly reminded of where true happiness comes from. Met some of the most amazing people, who taught me A LOT. But yeah life is just big. SO much out there; can’t describe it in a status. It’s something that’s got to be seen and experienced first-hand. Now what I’ve got to do is APPLY everything I’ve leant and experienced. It’s one thing to experience personally but passing it on is where I believe it becomes most effective. And do MORE! This is what I want my life to revolve around. I’m set on it. Everything else will have to fit in! Haha But yeah, back to aus life, got to get back to my work and plan for the next one! and got to get used to paying in dollars again. And of course I miss everyone and everything SO much . They’ve got a piece of my heart, but in a good way but that’s only for now” (Rach FB message.)
Rachel we call her, a 24 years old lady from Australia. She did a lot of help while she stayed with us. Her last week was spent in a surfing lesson in one of the famous beach in Baler, Province of Aurora. Yes, you too can do the same.
Anyone there that would like to experience a humble service to the destitute children, we are inviting you to be volunteers here at ICC Philippines Foundation and see what big things you can do. Just give us a message here at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Did you experienced giving an extravagant gift? Did you experience giving everything you have for the Lord? In Jesus time, there was a beggar who offered all her livelihood to God. Everything she has was given as her extravagant gift. That time the two mites were the only wealth she has and yet she has given them all.
Likewise, Jesus is the first model of giving an extravagant gift when he offered his life for the cause of saving human race from the bondage of sin.
Giving financial support to the orphans at International Children’s Care Philippines (ICCP) is an extravagant gift because this fund will save the lives of the poorest among the poor children from poverty. In the same way, your gift will sustain their food, education and residential care.
If you are inspired to give your extravagant gift to ICCP orphans. Kindly deposit it to Philippine National Bank ICC PHILIPPINES FOUNDATION INC 19-271-470001-2 or send thru Western Union, LBC, Palawan Express and please send us your message to this email email@example.com thanks and God bless.
