About IRC:

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 IRC has been working in Pakistan for over 30 years, and manages and delivers large, complex programs to meet needs in protection, health, education, environmental health and livelihoods for displaced, poor and conflict-affected communities.
