Where there is the International Rescue Committee, there is rescue for millions of people in desperate circumstances. From setting up healing classrooms for children uprooted by war, to building wells on drought-ridden land, the IRC is helping people to rebuild their lives. http://www.Rescue.org
Backed by an outpouring of contributions from our committed supporters, the International Rescue Committee has launched an emergency response in the Western Visayas region, a neglected front in the disaster that struck the Philippines on November 8.
Bob Kitchen has worked with the IRC in some of the most demanding and dangerous places in the world, including Iraq, Sierra Leone, Sudan and Congo. He’s directed the IRC’s Afghanistan program since 2009, and he leaves this summer to assume a new post as director of the IRC’s Emergency Response Team. During his last week in Kabul, he spoke with Ned Colt via Skype about his time in Afghanistan and the accomplishments of the country staff there.
