Baltimore, MD (IOCC) — International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) is monitoring the emerging needs of the community following the outbreak of civil unrest and looting in Baltimore where it is headquartered.

IOCC staff are in contact with community and faith leaders in the Baltimore area to offer assistance and support, especially to those areas of the city that have been most acutely affected.

“Monday night was certainly challenging to watch as our city endured so much violence,” said IOCC Executive Director Constantine Triantafilou. “We have been receiving messages of concern and prayers from board members, donors and former employees from all over the world. We join in their prayers for peace and healing in our community.”
