When villages and homes are suddenly attacked, families must run for their lives toward the relative safety of refugee camps. But when they arrive, where will they stay?
We help address those immediate worries by handing out shelter materials such as rope and sturdy plastic sheeting. It’s a basic but effective way to safeguard families from the elements.
$54 can provide sets of rope and durable plastic sheeting to help four families construct temporary shelters in refugee camps, keeping them safe from the elements.
This holiday season, give an IRC Rescue Gift to someone special. Your online gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1.7 million through December 31.
