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.

Program accomplishments

Together, we have brought 1 million impoverished Filipinos transformation in every area of life.
