IOCC Receives Support for Haiti Relief Efforts from Antiochian Church

April 15, 2010

IOCC’s ongoing relief efforts in Haiti received a boost from the faithful of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. His Eminence, Metropolitan PHILIP (Saliba) presented a check for $150,000 to IOCC Executive Director and CEO Constantine M. Triantafilou, in the presence of His Grace Bishop Antoun, Order of St Ignatius of Antioch chair Dan Abraham, and IOCC board members the Very Rev. Michael Ellias and Anne Glynn Mackoul on April 14 at Antiochian headquarters in Englewood, N.J. The gift brought the total raised by IOCC in response to the earthquake in Haiti to over one million dollars. “When the earth shook in Haiti, it also shook our hearts and our souls. The faithful of the Antiochian Archdiocese responded generously to my appeal and I am pleased to present this check to IOCC,” said His Eminence, Metropolitan PHILIP.
