December 31, 2022

Work You Made Possible

As 2022 draws to a close, we want to take a moment to thank you for everything you’ve helped accomplish through IOCC. These are just some of the ways you’ve helped people in need around the world and served others in the spirit of Christ’s love:

  • IOCC reached 65 rural women in the West Bank with agricultural support for establishing home gardens to feed their families.
  • IOCC delivered two shipping containers carrying over 30,500 pounds of medical supplies to public hospitals and health clinics in northern Greece.
  • In Jordan, nearly 300 people (53 households) received rent assistance between July and September 2022, and IOCC provided 13,735 people with quilts and school kits.
  • In Kosovo, IOCC helped establish a diocesan resource center for small farmers, including providing a commercial printing machine so the center can print and distribute info and educational literature to farmers improving their production.
  • IOCC continues supporting a soup kitchen in Belgrade, Serbia, as the Church develops intensive vegetable production to serve over 2,000 daily meals for people in need.
  • On IOCC’s US home build teams, 44 volunteers responded following tornadoes in western Kentucky and Hurricane Ida in Louisiana, repairing 7 homes, during 2,715 volunteer hours.
  • Nearly 50,500 students at public schools throughout Lebanon received daily meals, increasing food security and supporting learning.
  • In Gaza, IOCC distributed grocery vouchers twice for 930 conflict-affected families and provided short-term employment for over 60 young adults (ages 22–26) at local community-based organizations.

The work continues, and with a $20,000 match now through midnight 12/31 ONLY, your support will have even more impact. Don’t miss this chance to continue sharing Christ’s love around the world as we look ahead to 2023.
