International Rescue Committee

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is a global humanitarian aid, relief, and development nongovernmental organization, which offers emergency aid and long-term assistance to refugees and those displaced by war, persecution, or natural disaster. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC operates in over 40 countries and 26 U.S. cities, where it helps to restore safety, dignity, and hope to millions who are uprooted by conflict and disaster. The IRC is committed to a mission that focuses on helping people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future. It provides a diverse range of services including health care, infrastructure, education, economic assistance, and advocacy for those uprooted or affected by violent conflict and oppression. Notably, the IRC is often among the first to respond in a crisis, and they stay as long as they are needed to help people to rebuild their communities. Their work is characterized by a commitment to accountability, innovation, and collaboration, ensuring that those affected by crises have a strong voice in their own recovery. The IRC’s work is crucial in transforming the lives of those affected by conflict and disaster, bringing attention to forgotten or neglected crises, and leading the way from harm to home.
