The International Rescue Committee (IRC) provides care to Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Laotian refugees. Through the provision of essentials like food and water, medical care, and sanitation, the IRC assists approximately 140,000 Myanmar refugees as well. The organization also provides protection, legal assistance, and resettlement processing for abused women and children.
Through a grant awarded under Advancing Partner & Communities (APC), the IRC ensures children under 18 in Burundi are in protective and permanent family care. The project aims to mainstream family-based child protection approaches at all levels of the government and contribute to shifts in fundamental skills, social attitudes, and norms regarding child protection and welfare in 10 provinces.
