Brazil ICC/ADRA Partnership
In the summer of 1995, Pastor Daniel dos Santos became aware of ICC’s model of care for orphaned and abandoned children. At the time, Pastor dos Santos served as director of the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) for the Central Sao Paulo Conference in Brazil. ADRA had started an orphan care project in Brazil using a similar philosophy and model as ICC’s. Since they were just beginning and ICC had been around for quite a few years by then, it was Pastor dos Santos desire to work together.
Pastor dos Santos asked if ICC would consider helping them find sponsors and give advice to this project when needed. Towards the end of 1996, ICC administration made a trip to Brazil to visit the Grandma Josephina Orphanage. After the visit, it was decided that ICC would help where possible. Since then, ICC has provided some assistance and counsel regarding operational funding and guidance in children’s services. ICC serves as the umbrella organization for receiving and transferring funds.
