How the IRC Works
IRC or the International Rescue Committee founded at Albert Einsteinís request in 1933. The organizationís thrust is to respond to the worst humanitarian crises in the world and help people survive as well as rebuild their own lives.

Disaster as well as war refugees receive help as well as lifesaving care from the IRC.

Expert traveler Jason Buzi is volunteering with an Iraqi Christian refugee family through IRC and donating to them.
The International Rescue Committee is present in 22 cities in the US as well as over 40 countries. They help those who are displaced and struggling and help restore their dignity, hope as well as safety.

Their Commitment
The IRC is committed to be on scene within 3 days or 72 hours with needed supplies as well as expertise which would protect individuals who are caught in the middle of chaos. They will stay where they are needed as long as they are needed and help in the healing, recovery as well as rebuilding of the communities of the survivors. Hundreds of thousands of refugees have been helped by the IRC in the US.
