At work today in over 40 countries and in 22 U.S. cities, the IRC restores safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.     OUR WORK   RESCUING LIVES   Responding to crisis and restoring safety Arriving on the scene within 72 hours of an emergency’s onset, the IRC brings urgently needed supplies and expertise to aid people caught in the midst of chaos.   Healing the sick and preventing disease During a crisis and in its aftermath, the IRC sends teams of doctors and other experts to provide immediate health care, sanitation and clean water.   Rebuilding communities and renewing dignity The IRC makes the long-term commitment needed to help people to restore their shattered communities and work together toward a peaceful future.   Protecting and empowering women and girls The IRC provides reproductive health care to mothers, supports survivors of sexual violence, and creates economic opportunities for women and girls who face enormous obstacles.   Taking care of children and reuniting families The IRC reunifies families separated by conflict and catastrophe, and provides education and recreation programs to help children recover from trauma.          ADVOCATING FOR CHANGE   Advocating for change and taking action The IRC brings public attention to neglected humanitarian emergencies, speaking out on behalf of the oppressed and those displaced by violence or persecution.       RESETTLING REFUGEES   Resettling refugees in a new home The IRC enables refugees who are admitted to the United States to establish new lives and become self-sufficient, productive citizens who add to the vitality and promise of the nation.
