The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, IRC offers life-saving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in more than 40 countries and in 22 U.S. cities, IRC restores safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted by conflict or disaster. IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The Syria crisis is often described as the worst humanitarian catastrophe since the end of the Cold War. Inside Syria, 7.6 million people are internally displaced and 12.2 million are in need of humanitarian assistance, with 4.8 million in hard-to-reach areas. This is no short-term humanitarian episode. The devastating human consequences to huge numbers of people will endure for decades. IRC is offering a robust humanitarian response to the Syria crisis supported by more than 1,250 staff in the region. IRC is undertaking programs in Syria and the neighboring countries of Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan in the fields of health, child protection, education, women’s protection and empowerment, cash assistance, water and sanitation, and livelihood programming. Our work in these challenging settings gives rise to some of the most pressing issues facing contemporary humanitarian action, including questions of access, security, funding and coordination.
IRC’s Syria program implements directly where it has access and prioritizes strategic health partnerships to meet the needs of the most vulnerable in hard to reach areas.

With this approach, the health program’s services are able to reach beneficiaries in diverse settings and with varied needs including individuals of all ages, IDP informal and formal camps and host communities, large cities to rural villages, as well as besieged and hard to reach areas.
