98% of all donations and grants to IVC is spent on our programs helping children and expectant mothers.
98%? How can IVC be so efficient?
1) IVC founder, Abul Sharah, spends six months a year at the clinic in India overseeing operations. He receives no compensation and covers all his own expenses, including airfare to and from India.
2) US dollars go a long way in India. The whole staff in India consisting of one full time and two part time doctors, two nurses, two pharmacists , management and 40 others cost $50,000 a year.
3) IVC has no paid staff in the United States. All the work done in the USA, including this website design and all fundraising, is done by volunteers.
