The International Rescue Committee responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises, helping to restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing, and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster. At the moment, IRC is working on crises in Yemen, Syria, South Sudan, Nigeria, Somalia, and Myanmar, including supporting Rohingya refugees (*including in Thailand, our current home). More information can be found on the IRC website and in the video here.
*The IRC is providing food and water, health care and sanitation, protection for children and women, and education and legal assistance for displaced people from Myanmar residing in Thailand, as well as resettlement processing for those offered sanctuary in the United States. For more than three decades, refugees from Myanmar have sought safe haven in neighboring Thailand. The International Rescue Committee is aiding more than 100,000 refugees in nine camps along the border.
