A World of Difference

IOCC assists families, refugees and displaced persons, the elderly, schoolchildren, orphans, and people with disabilities. Aid is offered based on need alone.

Since 1992, your support has made it possible to provide humanitarian relief and sustainable development programs to people across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. IOCC continually works to strategically apply its expertise wherever the needs are greatest.

IOCC operates at the invitation of the Orthodox Church in the countries where it serves. The Church helps identify the needs and beneficiaries and often actively works alongside IOCC in project implementation. IOCC’s close relationship with the Orthodox Church means that we often have access to underserved communities where needs are great and access to assistance is limited.
