Charities and Donations
The IFC is committed to donating to charitable intstitutions both locally and internationally.
WORLD VISION - MIHRET CHUCHU
As part of our international commitment the IFC has adopted through the charitable organization World Vision, Mihret ChuChu. Mihret was only 4 when the IFC adopted her, and turned 5 recently. The IFC sent her card in celebration of her birthday. Each year we will receive an Annual Progress Report which is shown here.

We gave $25 to a Kiva participant (Salome) who is studying to be a lawyer, in Tbilsi, Georgia. She is a low-income student and is trying to better her life and her daughter's. It completed her request for this semester. We still have over $210 credit with Kiva (from repaid loans) and I will continue to look for worthy recipients
