Review for International Rescue Committee, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a nurse, humanitarian aid worker and writer and it has been my privilege to work with the IRC in their programs, both emergency and ongoing, around the world. For me, the IRC is the "real deal" delivering time and again, the purest form of humanitarian assistance imaginable. In the darkest corners of the world, it is invariably the IRC staff who will shine a light of hope by providing a myriad of necessary programs to allow refugees and displaced to survive chaos and destruction with their dignity, health and courage intact.
The IRC challenges all of us to be better, and by meeting that challenge, the world is a little more restored, a little more recovered each day.

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

Kakuma refugee camp, the Balkans, Iraq and Darfur

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

I would bang the drums loudly about IRC's many successes.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & Emergency Health Coordinator, Health Manager, Health Officer in Kakuma Refugee Camp, the Balkans, Iraq and Darfur.
