What are people saying about IOCC?

“Obviously IOCC was a major player here. They came out early on. I think they did very well in terms of how they approached the problem. They went to local communities, talked to the diocese, to the priests, to the community leaders, to the farmers, to those most impacted by the damage. They went to the communities and talked to them about their needs. So we were very pleased that an American organization and private citizens reached out to help their Greek friends.”
— Daniel V. Speckhard, U.S. Ambassador to Greece

“IOCC has opened avenues for Orthodox activity where no one imagined we would ever go.”
— His Eminence Archbishop DEMETRIOS of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America

“IOCC’s mission in the service of the poor is a common, sacred task…. IOCC is a vehicle of cooperation for the sister Orthodox Churches. We need this inter-Orthodox unity not only in the area of philanthropy but also on a broader spectrum.”
— His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch BARTHOLOMEW
