A jubilant crowd laughed and cried through the ICM 20th Anniversary Celebration evening as we shared 20 powerful stories of lives that have been dramatically changed over the last 20 years of ICM’s operations. One of the highlights of the night was the surprise guest appearance by “Philippine Idol” winner, Jude Matthew Servilla, a previous ICM feeding recipient with an amazing voice.
Susan Entong, an ICM recipient who spoke at our 2008 banquet, also shared her story of forgiveness and hope. Susan endured horrible burns on her face and body when her father threw a kerosene lamp at her. After numerous reconstructive surgeries provide by ICM, Susan now lives at ICM’s Excel House and is a star student in public school. She plans to be a social worker when she grows up and is well on her way to fulfilling that dream. Her extraordinarily optimistic view of life left an indelible mark on many of us.
It truly was a night full of celebration! For those of you who were not able to attend, please enjoy these photos and this short video reflecting on ICM’s amazing 20 year history:
