In FY2017, IRC was present in 19 countries throughout Africa, where it provided relief, rehabilitation and post-conflict support to communities in the midst of or recently recovering from conflict, violence and natural disasters. Throughout West Africa, in Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Liberia and Sierra Leone, IRC worked in close cooperation with government and local communities to provide post-conflict assistance to rebuild areas and institutions devastated by decades of civil war. In Burundi, Uganda and Tanzania, IRC worked with refugees, returnees and host communities to ensure that critical support reached those most in need. IRC programs in Libya, Cameroon, South Sudan, Zimbabwe, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo helped communities recover from conflict, chronic poverty and government instability. IRC provided relief and post-conflict development in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia, while programming in Mali, Niger and Chad provided lifesaving assistance during drought emergencies as well as during periods of political instability and armed conflict.

Middle East


In the Middle East, IRC called attention to the plight of those uprooted by turmoil in Syria and helped support thousands of Syrian refugees in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. IRC was present in Yemen to provide support for those whose lives and families have been disrupted by the ongoing political tumult and violence in the country, particularly by supplying programs in water, sanitation and child nutrition.

Central and Southeast Asia


In FY17, IRCs programming also spanned parts of Central and Southeast Asia. In Afghanistan, IRC focused on providing returning refugees and internally displaced Afghans with shelter, water and sanitation and improving the nations healthcare, infrastructure and economy. In Myanmar, IRC provided humanitarian assistance focused on health, livelihoods, social development, and water and sanitation. IRC also provided support for displaced individuals and families who will be resettled in the United States via IRC centers throughout Thailand and Malaysia.
