Millions displaced: The IRC responds
More than 60 million people worldwide have been displaced from their homes, the largest upheaval of humanity since World War II. Twelve million are from Syria alone, but conflict, persecution and natural disaster have impacted South Sudan, Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan as well.
The IRC and its partner organizations have responded by rapidly delivering vital lifesaving aid to these crisis areas. In 2015, 23 million people in more than 40 countries and 26 U.S. cities benefited from IRC programs that help restore health, safety, education and economic well-being to those devastated by conflict and disaster.
