The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is a global humanitarian aid, relief and development non-governmental organisation.

Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers emergency aid and long-term assiestance to refugees and those displaced by war, persecution or natural disaster. The IRC is currently working in over 40 countries and 22 American cities where it resettles refugees and helps them become self-sufficient. The President of the International Rescue Committee is former UK Foreign Secretary, David Miliband.

Consisting of first responders, humanitarian relief workers, international development experts, health care providers, and educators, the IRC has assisted millions of people around the world since its founding in 1933.
