Today more than 60 million people worldwide are uprooted by war, conflict or disaster, according to the United Nations. How the International Rescue Committee is working to deliver more sustainable, impactful humanitarian aid during this time of unprecedented crisis is the subject of an article published in the December 2016/January 2017 issue of Fast Company.
Writes Fast Company contributing writer Matthew Shaer, "...there are few organizations with as much programming breadth as the IRC, and none that can rival its ability to help refugees and displaced people at every stage, from emergency response to resettlement in a new home in Europe or the United States."
The article focuses on the IRC’s commitment to evidence-based solutions and use of technology to help restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing and power to the world’s most vulnerable people.
