Program areas at IRC

In Africa, the IRC worked in 20 countries to respond to new and ongoing crises in the region. In East Africa, including Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Uganda, and Zimbabwe, the IRC provided lifesaving aid in response to conflict and during periods of severe drought, and strengthened health, water, and sanitation systems throughout the region. In North and West Africa, including Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Cote D Ivoire, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone, the IRC strengthened health systems and additionally implemented programs to protect vulnerable populations, particularly women and children. The IRC in the Great Lakes region, in Burundi, Central African Republic, the DR Congo, and Tanzania, worked with local and national partners to help rebuild communities impacted by violence, and put in place rapid response mechanisms to provide lifesaving support to those in need.
IRC employed expert staff and advisors in sectors including Economic Recovery and Development, Health, Governance, Education, and Violence Prevention and Response. IRC maintained units that provided logistical and administrative support to the country programs listed above and advanced Gender Equality Diversity, and Inclusion as well as ensuring innovation and data-informed decision-making. Finally, the IRCs Emergency Response team, which operated in Ukraine and Poland at the height of crisis, lent surge support and expertise to IRC teams across the globe.
Through a network of 29 cities across the country, the IRCs Resettlement, Asylum, and Integration RAI US Department ensures that refugees and other vulnerable immigrants have the resources and tools they need to build new lives in America. RAI US serves over 50,000 individuals each year through a diverse portfolio of programs aimed at five core outcomes Health, Safety, Economic Wellbeing, Education, and Power. Staff and volunteers work together to resettle newly arrived refugees, facilitating food, shelter, and other basic needs during the pivotal first months in the US. To promote self-reliance over the long term, RAI US also offers English language classes, vocational training, and job placement activities, as well as specialized services for asylees, survivors of torture, human trafficking, and other forms of trauma. RAI US provides comprehensive legal services to help refugees and other immigrants become permanent residents and US citizens, and supports a variety of programs designed to help new arrivals feel welcome and integrate into their adopted communities.
