The IRC in Pakistan
The International Rescue Committee has worked in Pakistan since 1980 and most recently has focused on emergency relief and recovery from the worst floods in the country's history. The IRC is rebuilding homes, schools, roads and other infrastructure to help Pakistanis get back to normal life. In addition, the IRC is providing health care and sanitation facilities and giving Pakistanis the tools to engage in their own recovery.
Inside our work in Pakistan
The IRC has worked in Pakistan for over 30 years, providing health care, education, job training and other essential services. In 2010, the IRC reacted within hours to the monsoon flooding that left more than a fifth of the country inundated and continues to help Pakistan recover and rebuild.
