This year the IRC has responded to more than 24 crises, including those in Pakistan, Ukraine and Afghanistan. When crisis strikes, the IRC responds quickly and stays as long as we are needed.
In addition to responding to emergencies, the IRC provides education and empowerment support to displaced people. The IRC supports women and girls by addressing the root causes of inequality, empowers people in crisis by helping them find a job or start a business, and supports children and their caregivers with education fundamentals.
