    The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.

    IRC Kenya is the primary provider of health services in Kakuma and Hagadera (Dadaab) Refugee Camps, including clinical services, maternal and newborn care, nutrition and immunization services for children and pregnant and lactating women, community health outreach, and HIV-AIDS & TB prevention and care. IRC’s office in Lodwar, Turkana County, serves local communities through livelihoods support programming, support to VSLAs and women’s and girl’s safe spaces, and efforts aimed at preventing and responding to gender-based violence. In Nairobi and Kajiado counties, IRC supports urban refugees and vulnerable populations through its Economic Recovery and Development (ERD) programming, as well as through protection and advocacy. As of June 2021, IRC initiated nutrition and women’s protection and empowerment (WPE) programming in West Pokot County, in collaboration with local partners.
