Just $68 can deliver a month’s supply of therapeutic food for at least 50 malnourished children in places wracked by food shortages or famine.
In the midst of a food crisis like the one that continues right now in East Africa, starving children need immediate nutrition to save their lives. The IRC gives them therapeutic foods like Plumpy’nut, a vitamin-packed paste that requires neither preparation nor medical supervision. It’s easy to distribute, tastes good to children and gives them a quick start on their way back to full health.
This year, we hope you’ll help the IRC assist not only the children suffering through the drought and famine in East Africa, but also the many men, women and children around the world who are uprooted by crisis and struggling to endure.
The 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. Your donation will be used where and when most needed in the IRC’s work in more than 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities. When combined with other donations, your gift will become a powerful means to survival, recovery and the restoration of dignity and self-reliance for the people we serve.
