Overview

The International Rescue Committee first began assisting Somalis in the early 1980s following the Somalia-Ethiopian conflict. Forced to halt programmes due to a resurgence of violence, the IRC restarted relief efforts in 2007, working with local authorities to provide health care, clean water, sanitation and other critical services.

We also foster development through the creation of jobs and community participation. Now, as Somalia and its neighbours face a catastrophic drought, the IRC is responding to Somalis’ urgent needs.
