International Rescue Committee

Since being founded in 1933, the IRC has responded when crises erupt in the world’s poorest and most remote regions. Following an emergency, the IRC deploys its emergency response team within 72 hours to assess critical survival needs and mount an effective response.


The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. For 80 years the IRC has offered lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war, persecution or natural disaster.
