How you can help

We cannot do our work without the help and generous support of people around the world. This support can take many forms, from donating today to fundraising on our behalf, from remembering the IRC in your Will to sponsoring someone's challenge event. Whatever it is, on behalf of the many thousands of people we help, thank you for your support.
