Hello, I'm Patrick Stewart.

Did you know that right now over 70 million people have had to leave their homes due to war and disaster? That's roughly the size of the United Kingdom.

I can't imagine what it would be like to have to suddenly leave my home, where to take my family, how to survive and, most importantly, who will help us.

Well, the answer is the International Rescue Committee. 

This wonderful organization was Albert Einstein's genius idea. They focus on the world's toughest places -- Syria, Yemen, South Sudan --  and deliver food and shelter,medical care. They also bring education and job training, and work to rebuild communities. 

Please join me in supporting the International Rescue Committee. They help families just like yours and mine to survive, recover, and live their lives with hope and dignity.
