    Goals / Remit

    The International Rescue Committee helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict
    and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future.
    IRC teams provide health care, infrastructure, learning and economic support to people in 40 countries,
    with special programs designed for women and children.
    With programmes in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and the Caribbean, we work in refugee camps, disaster
    and countries that host refugees. We also work with communities recovering from war or experiencing
    prolonged crisis or conflict. The IRC was founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein.

    more democratic.
