Ebola Crisis

The International Rescue Committee has been at the forefront of the fight to stem the spread of the deadly Ebola virus since the first cases were diagnosed in Liberia and Sierra Leone in March 2014.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities to restore safety, dignity and hope, the IRC leads the way from harm to home.
