Allen & Overy receives ICM Hope Award

13 November 2018

Helping to enrich the lives of over 15,000 Filipinos

​On October 24, 2018 International Care Ministries (ICM) was pleased to recognise Allen & Overy as a recipient of the ICM Hope Award. As a charity focused on empowering the ultrapoor in the Philippines through holistic community education, ICM depends on partners that share the belief that people are able to transform their own futures with the right training and the right resources to unlock the bondages of poverty. 

Allen & Overy in Hong Kong has been a consistent partner of ICM for the past seven years, providing training and resources to transform the lives of over 15,000 Filipinos. Additionally, understanding the need for equipment, Allen & Overy has contributed computers and mobile phones as well as funded the purchase of vehicles to support ICM’s work in the remote regions of the Philippines. 

Matt Bower, Allen & Overy Hong Kong Pro Bono partner received the award from David Sutherland, Chairman of ICM’s Board of Directors, at the ICM Annual Hong Kong Banquet in front of an audience of over 700 people. The example set by Hope Awardees was part of the inspiration for banquet attendees to contribute over US$2million to the fight against ultrapoverty during the evening. ICM is continuously grateful for the partnership and example of Allen & Overy.

Matt Bower comments: “We are proud to support the life-changing work of ICM with the ultrapoor in the Philippines. As a result of ICM’s Transform and Family Academy Programmes, thousands of people have been helped to improve their daily lives and the education of their children.”
