Ken Smith

"My adopted nephew was in the care of ICC from very early in his life. ICC gave him loving, healthy care and an opportunity to be adopted into our family. It is a joy to support the organization that made all of that possible."

Michele Harris

“As a physical therapist, I have been active in advocacy for individuals with disabilities since 1990. When ICC came into my life I was called into a different journey, one of not only advocacy but one of regard. China, like the US, is on a path to understanding and embracing the unique, God-given, and sacred role individuals with disabilities play in a nation, community, family, and individual heart. My goal is help everyone be blessed by these children of Light.”

Sylvia Leong

"The first time I visited ICC's Hengyang center, I was amazed by how much joy and love was immediately visible from the second you walk in the gate.  The children and families of ICC remind us that love can transform lives, and that every life is worthy of love, dignity and care.  In a global society that values productivity and efficiency, ICC is a much needed institution that shows us the beauty of being present, the value of being still, and the worthiness of all lives.  It's a privilege to serve such a caring institution."
