Meet two families in South Central Somalia whose lives and communities have been improved through International Rescue Committee projects helping drought and famine survivors make a living. The projects receive support from ECHO, the European Commission's humanitarian aid office.
On April 30, 2013, the International Rescue Committee hosted our first Google+ Hangout to provide an inside look at how IRC communications and media officers bring stories of our work from the field to our supporters.
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.
