Many have lost loved ones. Homes and possessions are destroyed. Repeated aftershocks can have a profound psychological effect. But we believe God is with his people and can provide them with a peace beyond understanding.

The World Needs Our Help.

ICR Canada is helping in many countries around the globe where North American missionaries simply can't safely go. For over 50 years, the international ministry of ICR has provided spiritual and material assistance to Christians who live in countries hostile to the gospel, enabling them to proclaim the truth, plant churches, and persevere.

Since 1969, ICR’s international ministry has been providing hope and help in Ukraine. At this time, as people in Ukraine are fleeing for their lives, ICR teams and partners are on the ground working to provide emergency food, safe shelter, blankets, and medical supplies for displaced people in Ukraine, and for those who have fled to nearby countries. Will you help?

Persecuted NOT abandoned.

Persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
