More than 82 million people worldwide have had to flee their homes due to conflict, disaster, or persecution. This is the highest number on record and the need for humanitarian aid is greater than ever before. Founded in 1933 at the suggestion of Albert Einstein, the International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster, including the climate crisis, to survive, recover and gain control of their future. We deliver lasting impact by providing health care, helping children learn, and empowering individuals and communities to become self-reliant, always with a focus on the unique needs of women and girls.
Start your own fundraising campaign, or join an existing campaign, in support of the International Rescue Committee's (IRC) efforts to help families who have been uprooted by humanitarian crises around the world.
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster, including climate change, to survive, recover and gain control of their future. In nearly 40 countries and in 25 U.S. cities, our dedicated teams provide clean water, shelter, health care, education, and empowerment support to refugees and displaced people.
Why help the IRC?
For nearly 90 years, the IRC has helped people facing conflict or disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of
their future. When an emergency strikes, we respond quickly, aiming to be on the ground within 72 hours to help people with
clean water, urgent medical care, critical supplies, and other assistance. We stay for as long as we are needed, helping people and communities to rebuild.
