Saving Lives in Congo
(October 2006) International Rescue Committee health unit director Rick Brennan talks about how the IRC is saving lives in Congo and what ordinary citizens can do to help. Brennan describes the “extraordinary, heroic effort” that went into conducting the three IRC-sponsored mortality studies that found that nearly 4 million people had died in Congo during the war, most from preventable diseases.
N.B. The petition campaign Brennan refers to in his remarks has ended. However, you can learn about other ways you can support the IRC's work in Congo and around the world here.
