International Rescue Committee
September 21, 2011

IRC has both disaster-centered and stateside programs for refugees, backed by sound financial management, and a long-term view that makes it unique among charitable agencies in international health.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping to set up refugee relief in Somalia in 1981. Today's crisis in East Africa is a repeat of the same problems, much compounded by the acquisition of weapons.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them lots of money to train workers in Arab culture and refugee-camp engineering. Develop an advanced program of communications based on the Internet or cell-phones and solar power so that the camps can obtain current information and share results with the world.

MY ROLE:
Professional with expertise in this field & Helped set up the IRC refugee program in Somalia in 1981.
