I recently attended a workshop by the IRC in Tucson, AZ to learn more about the human trafficking corridor running through my hometown. The facilitator was very well-informed, professional, and dedicated to helping this vulnerable population group. Now, I know how to spot a possible victim of trafficking and I know where to turn to get help for the victim...the IRC.

Most of the money is spent on programs not on other expenses. That's the reason I donate, support and recommend IRC

After the tradgedies in Haiti I decided I wanted to use my crafting to help others, so I opened an on-line shop to sell the items I make and donate all proceeds for Haiti relief.
I researched what charity I would donate to and was totally impressed with the IRC. Their history of helping is tremendous, and their efficient use of funds is admirable. Since then, I've also heard from others that know of the IRC and are equally impressed.
I appreciate the IRC for giving me a trusted route thru which to help the people of Haiti with my shop proceeds.
