International Care Ministries is a non-profit organization that serves people living in extreme poverty in the Philippines.

In partnership with community leaders, ICM delivers health, education, and economic development programs that transform the lives of more than 100,000 people each year. The average daily income of an ICM beneficiary is 37 cents, so providing access to high-quality healthcare is a critical component of ICM’s work. They support patients who cannot afford critical medical services with diagnostics, treatment, and referral care.

ICM receives praise for its data-driven approach to social impact, and its work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal. All of ICM’s financial information is publicly available.

Arniel

Arniel is a 12-month-old baby. He lives with his parents and three siblings in the Philippines. Arniel loves to play with his siblings. His father works in an amusement park in Dapitan. Arniel has been diagnosed with moderately acute malnutrition. Malnutrition threatens his growth and development and could even be fatal if not addressed. Fortunately, he will begin $184 malnutrition treatment on February 20. Arniel will be treated by International Care Ministries (ICM), a Watsi medical partner. One out of five children under five in ICM communities is either severely or moderately malnourished. Worldwide, poor nutrition is associated with nearly half of all deaths in young children. In remote communities and urban slums of the Philippines, the lack of clean water and unclean environments add risk to potentially fatal childhood diseases. ICM’s home-based feeding program provides nutrient-enriched food packs to ensure malnourished children get additional food to regain normal weight and achieve optimum physical and mental development. After identifying a child as malnourished, staff and community volunteers make weekly visits to monitor this child’s progress. To help sustain the health of the child, ICM’s professional staff educate the mother, guardian, or other family members about proper nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, and organic vegetable gardening. "I am glad he will receive a feeding treatment. I hope that Arniel will recover from malnutrition and that he will grow up healthy," says his mother.
