The IRC Story in 2010: By, for and about people
December 31, 2010
By George Rupp
Some of my International Rescue Committee colleagues who are working in Haiti to provide direct support to nearly 100,000 earthquake survivors.
I want to close 2010 by paying special tribute to the courageous members of the International Rescue Committee field staff, including those working in our 22 U.S. resettlement offices. Many of these men and women work in dangerous and difficult circumstances to selflessly carry out our work.
They are doctors and nurses, teachers and health care aides, governance advisors and reconstruction experts, experts in women's security and empowerment, counselors, and child and youth protection officers. All of them pursue the noble work of helping fellow members of their world community make the journey from harm to home.
I applaud their service and commitment to the IRC's mission. And I applaud you, friends of the IRC, for providing the foundation of compassion and generosity that makes all their work a reality.
