Survive, Recover, Rebuild
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) helps people whose lives have been shattered by conflict and disaster,
including the climate crisis, to survive, recover and gain control of their future.
Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, the IRC works in over 40 crisis-affected countries, providing health
care and education, addressing the safety and economic well-being needs of refugees and displaced people, and
empowering individuals and communities to be self-reliant, with a focus on the unique needs of women and girls.
The IRC Response
When an emergency arises, the IRC can arrive on the scene within 72 hours to provide shelter, clean water,
sanitation, emergency healthcare, support for children, and special aid for women. As the emergency subsides,
the IRC stays to revive livelihoods and help shattered communities rebuild.
As one of the only organizations that works across the entire arc of crisis – from the warzones of Syria to resettling
refugees in dozens of cities across Europe and the Americas – we support millions throughout their entire journey
from harm to home.
