I have been supporting the IRC since the late 1970s, when the organization was Spanish Refugee Aid. The IRC has years of experience working directly with refugees and I know that my contributions have always been well used as well as much needed.

I am very selective about which organizations I choose to support. IRC is in my top 5 without question. Their response to emergencies is immediate and effective. I trust them to use my donations in the most useful manner possible.

We think that International Rescue Committee is doing a wonderful job in helping people. Without the help of non - profits many people around the world would not receive any help.
