More than 15 years have passed since the armed conflict in Kosovo, but the minority families that returned to their villages still live in isolation and uncertainty. Most are small-scale farmers who struggle to support their families because of limited farm equipment and an unreliable water supply. Your gift of $750 is enough to buy a share of a multi-grain flour production line in Kosovo for IOCC's Church partner, so they can process grain purchased from 60 small-farming families—bolstering the livelihood of these farmers, who otherwise would not have the market to sell their products.
*The examples in this catalog are for illustrative purposes. IOCC will use your gift, and that of others, to accomplish its overall mission of assisting families and communities to help themselves. Since 1992, IOCC has been transforming lives with innovative programs that prevent the spread of disease, equip farmers with tools and training, educate school children, build the Church's ability to help the poor, and deliver emergency supplies to those who have been caught in war and natural disaster.
