iFamNews is a project of the International Organization for the Family (IOF). Our goal is nothing less than to build the first truly global pro-family and pro-life news outlet. Just as IOF have united tens of thousands of leaders from around the world in our World Congress of Families (WCF) events, with this new initiative we hope to create an online global pro-family community of readers who can trust us as a source.
