“More than half the world's refugees live in urban areas, sometimes benefiting from family, sometimes being exploited. Anab, an older Somali woman, told me through a translator that IRC had rescued her and her brother from ill health and homelessness. But IRC gave her something else:  ‘The IRC gave me courage,’ she said.”

- David Miliband, blogging in Huffington Post UK about his visit this week to International Rescue Committee programs in Kenya. Miliband, former Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom, will succeed George Rupp as the IRC’s President and CEO in September.
