About IRC (International Rescue Committee):

The IRC reacts to the biggest humanitarian disasters in the world and assists people in surviving and re-establishing their lives. The IRC, which was established in 1933 at Albert Einstein’s request, provides refugees who are compelled to leave conflict or natural disasters with life-saving treatment and transformative support. We are now restoring safety, dignity, and hope to millions of people who have been uprooted and are fighting to survive in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities. Leading the road from danger to home is the IRC. In 1988, the IRC launched its national initiative in Afghanistan. Our initiatives include a wide spectrum, concentrating on child safety, education, economic well-being, health, and power. They also include early recovery and development activities. Almost 1000 people are employed by the IRC, which operates in ten provinces across Afghanistan, including those of the most dangerous in terms of security.
