"To see the humanity in each other is the most powerful thing that we can do”

Adjoa Andoh, an IRC high-profile supporter and acclaimed actress best known for her roles in Bridgerton, Invictus, and Doctor Who, took part in IRC’s emergency activities in local transit points and dormitories, visited women and girls’ safe spaces and had heartfelt conversations with people who had undertaken dangerous journeys to reach Europe, listening to their experiences and witnessing first-hand the challenges they encounter on arrival.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) helps people affected by humanitarian crises to survive, recover and rebuild their lives. We deliver lasting impact by providing health care, helping children learn, and empowering individuals and communities to become self-reliant, always with a focus on the unique needs of women and girls. Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, we now work in over 40 crisis-affected countries as well as communities throughout Europe and the Americas.
