Activity summary:

The International Catholic Migration Commission is an operational arm of the Catholic Church which coordinates catholic assistance activities for refugees, migrants and other displaced persons worldwide. Established by the Holy See in 1951, ICMC provides direct practical aid to immigrants, migrants and refugees awaiting resettlement or trying to integrate successfully into a new society, or just temporarily displaced. Hundreds of thousands of persons have been successfully resettled through the sponsorship of ICMC and its affiliates and partner-agencies working in countries throughout the world.
