International Rescue Committee (IRC)

About this Blog

The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster.

At work today in over 40 countries and in 22 U.S. cities, the IRC restores safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.

IRC’s Voices from the Field blog features the experiences and challenges of IRC staff and the stories of the courageous people they meet. We hope you’ll add your voice to the mix by leaving a comment.
