Jencarlos and the IRC
“I very much identify with the IRC’s mission to help children and their families fleeing dangerous situations,” Jencarlos says. “I can’t think of a more rewarding use of my time than to use my voice to support their life-saving work. Being able to help people in need is my dream.”
