AFGHAN REFUGEES REBUILD THEIR LIVES IN AMERICA
International Rescue Committee
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, the IRC works in more than 50 countries and in 28 U.S. cities helping people to survive, reclaim control of their future, and strengthen their communities. We funded IRC’s efforts supporting thousands of Afghans resettling in the US in 2021, supported its relief operations in Pakistan following the devastating floods that left a third of the country underwater in 2022, and are currently contributing to its emergency response operations in eastern Libya.
The IRC has more than 20 offices across the US which resettle refugees, ensuring they have access to safe, decent and stable housing, long-term healthcare, education, employment, financial stability and rights services.
Each office serves as a free, one-stop centre for refugees’ needs during their pivotal first months in the US. Through a network of staff members and volunteers, the IRC helps refugees learn about American life and customs, secure jobs, learn English, and become citizens.
The IRC helped resettle over 10,000 Afghans, helping them rebuild their lives in the US.
