About the IRC

More than 65 million people on earth are displaced…

The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises, helping restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing, and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster.  Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, the IRC is at work in over 30 countries helping people to survive, reclaim their future, and strengthen their communities. 

50% of each Jeans For Refugees sale will go to the Europe and Middle-East Refugee Crisis

The IRC is the only international humanitarian aid organisation responding to this crisis on all fronts, working inside war-torn Syria; in the neighbouring countries of Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq; in Greece, where thousands of refugees are entering Europe; and in the United States, where the IRC resettle refugees from the Middle East and around the world. 

50% of each Jeans For Refugees sale will go to the ‘Forgotten Crises’

While the refugee crisis in Europe continues to dominate headlines, many countries are left to struggle with man-made or natural disasters largely out of sight - for instance Nigeria or Ethiopia. IRC’s emergency fund helps deliver rapid life-saving aid to the victims of these forgotten crises.
