Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the International Rescue Committee is the leading nonsectarian, voluntary organization providing relief, protection, and resettlement services for refugees, asylum-seekers, and victims of trafficking. IRC is committed to freedom, human dignity and self-reliance. This commitment is reflected in well-planned resettlement assistance, global emergency relief, rehabilitation and advocacy for refugees.
