The refugee crisis
The International Rescue Committee is providing protection, health care, clean water, sanitation, resettlement assistance and more to Syrian refugees in Europe, the Middle East and the U.S. There’s more to do, and we need your help.
So far, only 17,000 of 4 million Syrian refugees have been re-settled in other countries.
More than 800,000 people arrived on the shores of Greece in 2015; an estimated 57% were fleeing the conflict in Syria.
An average of 50 Syrian families are forced to flee their homes, every hour of every day.
The IRC's efficiency maximizes your gift's impact.
More than 90 cents of every dollar we spend worldwide goes directly to help refugees and others in desperate need.
