I spent the last ten days visiting International Rescue Committee programs in Jordan and Iraq. Trips into the field inspire me and always make me proud of the outstanding work performed by the IRC staff, most of whom hail from the countries in which we work. These selfless individuals have devoted their lives to helping their fellow citizens rebuild their own.
