How you can make a difference
Record numbers of people have been forced to flee their homes because of conflict or disaster. Together, we can make sure they survive, recover and regain hope. Start fundraising for the International Rescue Committee and join supporters across the world who are standing up for communities when their lives have been turned upside down.
Your support will make a huge difference: 90p from every £1 you raise goes directly towards our work in the world’s toughest environments. Whether it’s getting lifesaving supplies to families, helping children go to school in refugee camps, protecting women from violence, vaccinating babies against diseases or giving a voice to those who’ve been forgotten, you’ll be helping us rescue lives and futures.
