The best of both worlds

At ICM we combine the best practices of the business and academic worlds with the passion and heart of a faith-based non-profit.

Since 1992, ICM has been providing help, hope, and change to impoverished families. We look forward to a day when no child has to live in ultra-poverty.

Impact at Scale

As the 13th most populous country in the world, the Philippines is home to more than 100 million people.

Despite robust economic growth in recent years, 25 million Filipinos still live in extreme poverty on incomes below US$1.25 per day.

At the absolute bottom of this economic ladder are seven million people struggling to survive in “ultra-poverty” on less than US$0.50 per day.

ICM serves the ultra-poor in the Visayas and Mindanao from 12 regional bases:

1. Palawan
2. Kalibo
3. Iloilo
4. Bacolod
5. Dumaguete
6. Cebu
7. Bohol
8. Tacloban
9. Dipolog
10. Koronadal
11. General Santos
12. Davao

History

In 1992, a group of passionate Filipino pastors were moved by the extreme poverty they saw everyday in their home city of Bacolod, Philippines. They started feeding and handing out medicines, and International Care Ministries was born. The new organization received strategic direction and funding from Hong Kong through Sharon Tan (who now runs an organisation in Dumaguete) and soon expanded to work in several provinces in the southern two-thirds of the Philippines.

Decades later, several of the founding pastors – Jacqueline Banasing, John Enguana, and Jonathan Sanchez – are still part of our local leadership. ICM now employs several hundred Filipinos who have reached more than one million people with holistic transformation.

David Sutherland, Chair of the ICM Board, has worked with ICM for the past twenty years. With decades of corporate experience, David is passionate about bringing best practice from the business world to ICM.
