Clothes and shoes for Colombia's children in the run up to Christmas
Posted: 12th October 2015
UK: Our community dining room projects are feeding and helping Colombia's vulnerable children and their families every day. With Christmas around the corner we want to raise a bit of extra money for shoes and clothes for these families.
Here are three simple ways to help IMC to help: 1) Buy your Christmas cards from Gospel Cards which gives 20% of the cost to IMC and other good causes; 2) Support IMC at an event or get yourself sponsored; or 3) give a donation - it costs just £5 per week to feed and provide support to a child (that's less than a couple of festive coffees on the high street!).

Remember Colombia on your Christmas list
Posted: 1st December 2013
Thanks to your amazing generosity, we have weathered the recession remarkably well for a small charity – but money is tight just now. Our funds are running low at the moment - and we are unable to send out the usual monthly amount to Colombia. This is putting additional pressure on an already stretched team. Can you consider making a gift to help some of the most vulnerable children in Colombia this Christmas?
An extra cash boost will help see IMiC through to the New Year when the team plan and budget for the year ahead – and ensure that the children we support can enjoy Christmas. We are so grateful for your support, through regular gifts or one-off donations. We don’t take you for granted. Please give what you can. In Colombia, every pound makes a huge difference.
