Where We Are

Our Sponsors are individuals and groups from many different countries, including Canada, China, Czech Republic, Dubai, Hong Kong, Hungary,* India, Kenya, Japan, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Philippines, Peru, Switzerland, Taiwan, The UK and The US.
*India is unique in that it both receives sponsorship from other countries, and additionally, sponsors its own. Many of these “in-country-sponsors” are ICCM alumni.
