"Strange is our situation here on Earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to divine a purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that man is here for the sake of other men."
Einstein played an important part in the International Rescue Committee's founding, so what better quote to share today, International Volunteer Day?
Thank you to all of the dedicated volunteers who help us come to the aid of refugees and others who have been uprooted by war, persecution and natural disaster.
If you have ever considered volunteering with the IRC, what better time than today to learn how to get involved? You can read about various ways to volunteer with the IRC here: Refugee Volunteer Opportunities
