International Care Ministries Celebrates 20 years of Service to the Philippines

Posted in Daily Life Blurbs by jpcase01 on March 7, 2012

University of Louisville grads may no know it, but the Managing Director of Morgan Stanley Asia is a fellow alumni.  His name is David Sutherland and in his spare time he pursues his passion of helping the poorest of the poor in the Philippines through an organization called International Care Ministries.  ICM just celebrated 20 years of service and held and event sharing 20 stories of change that have occurred over these 20 years.  I highly suggest you attend an ICM banquet if the opportunity presents itself.

ICM has started over 85 kindergartens in the Philippines.

One of the most amazing stories of the night was when ICM shared about holding a singing contest in a ultra-poor area of the Philippines.  The winner of ICM’s contest decided to audition for a show similar to American Idol and ended up winning, a true rags to riches story right before our eyes.
