Award to International Rescue Committee (IRC)
The Foundation has awarded a grant of $25,000 to the International Rescue Committee to help the IRC save refugee families in crisis. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC delivers lifesaving care to people fleeing conflict and natural disaster. Year after year, the IRC is one of the highest-ranking nonprofits for accountability, transparency, and efficient use of contributions.
With the recent attrosities waged on the Syrian people, it highlights the tremendous suffering of these families. So far, only
17,000 of 4 million Syrian refugees have been re-settled in other countries. An average of 50 Syrian families are forced to flee their homes, every hour of every day.
