Hope Behind the Headlines

When crisis strikes—whether conflict, natural disaster or climate change—the IRC is there to provide immediate relief and assistance. In the past year, the IRC stepped up during unprecedented emergencies in Afghanistan, Ukraine, Yemen and beyond.

But when the headlines fade and the world turns away, IRC teams remain to make a difference. Day in and day out, the IRC is in the world’s toughest places helping people whose lives have been shattered by conflict and disaster survive, recover and rebuild their lives.

And it’s not just our staff who make our work possible. Every day, the refugees and displaced people we serve are inspiring hope and making a lasting impact in their communities.

Join our Global Virtual Event and honor the vital work of the IRC teams, and the courage and resilience of refugees and displaced people around the world.

الأمل بعيداً عن دائرة الضوء

لجنة الإنقاذ الدولية (IRC) حاضرة دوماً لتقديم الإغاثة وتوفير المساعدة العاجلة في العديد من الأزمات حول العالم سواء بسبب النزاعات أو الكوارث الطبيعية أو التغير المناخي. وقد تدخلت لجنة الإنقاذ الدولية العام الماضي خلال حالات الطوارئ غير المسبوقة في أفغانستان، وأوكرانيا واليمن وغيرها.

ولكن عندما تتوارى العناوين الرئيسية ويولي العالم ظهره، تظل فرق لجنة الإنقاذ الدولية تعمل بلا كلل لإحداث فرق كبير على أرض الواقع. ويومًا بعد يوم، تتواجد لجنة الإنقاذ الدولية في أصعب المواقع حول العالم لمساعدة اللاجئين والنازحين على البقاء على قيد الحياة والتعافي وإعادة بناء حياتهم.
لم يكن من الممكن تحقيق تلك الإنجازات بسواعد موظفينا وحدهم، بل يجسد اللاجئون والنازحون الذين نخدمهم كل يوم الأمل الذي ننشده بفضل عملهم دون كلل من أجل صنع تأثير إيجابي دائم في مجتمعاتهم.

انضم إلى حدثنا الافتراضي العالمي واحتفل بالجهود الاستثنائية لفرق لجنة الإنقاذ الدولية، وشجاعة وصمود اللاجئين والنازحين في جميع أنحاء العالم.

L’ESPOIR DERRIÈRE LES GROS TITRES

Lorsqu’une crise frappe, qu’il s’agisse d’un conflit, d’une catastrophe naturelle ou d’un événement climatique, l’IRC répond à l’appel en apportant des secours immédiats. Au cours de l’année écoulée, l’IRC a accéléré la cadence pour faire face à des urgences sans précédents en Afghanistan, en Ukraine, au Yémen et ailleurs.

Cependant, lorsque les gros titres s’estompent dans l’esprit du public, les équipes IRC restent sur place et continuent leur travail en coulisse. Jour et après jour, l’IRC œuvre dans les régions les plus difficiles au monde, aidant les réfugiés et les déplacés internes à survivre, à se rétablir et à reconstruire leur vie.

Mais nos employés ne sont pas les seuls à remercier pour ce travail. Les réfugiés et les déplacés internes que nous servons sont une source d’inspiration et d’espoir, et leur impact sur les communauté est durable

Participez à notre événement virtuel mondial pour célébrer non seulement le travail vital des équipes de l’International Rescue Committee, mais aussi le courage et la résilience des réfugiés et des déplacés internes dans le monde entier.

HOFFNUNG JENSEITS DER SCHLAGZEILEN

Wann immer eine Krise ausbricht – sei es ein Konflikt, eine Naturkatastrophe oder der Klimawandel – ist das International Rescue Committee (IRC) zur Stelle und leistet Soforthilfe und Unterstützung. Im vergangenen Jahr hat das IRC in noch nie dagewesenen Notsituationen in Afghanistan, in der Ukraine, im Jemen und weiteren Regionen seine Arbeit aufgenommen.

Wenn dann die Schlagzeilen verblassen und die Welt sich abwendet, bleiben die IRC-Teams, um etwas zu bewirken. Tag für Tag ist das IRC an den schwierigsten Orten der Welt im Einsatz und hilft Flüchtlingen und Binnenvertriebenen, zu überleben, sich zu erholen und ihr Leben wieder aufzubauen.

Dabei sind es nicht nur unsere Mitarbeiter, die unsere Arbeit möglich machen. Jeden Tag wecken die Flüchtlinge und Vertriebenen, denen wir helfen, Hoffnung und bewirken nachhaltige Veränderungen in ihren Gemeinschaften.

Nehmen Sie an unserem globalen virtuellen Event teil und feiern Sie die lebenswichtige Arbeit der Teams des International Rescue Committee sowie den Mut und die Widerstandsfähigkeit von Flüchtlingen und Vertriebenen in aller Welt.

LA ESPERANZA DETRÁS DE LOS TITULARES

HOPP EFTER HYLLNINGAR

Under det senaste året har RESCUE kommit till undsättning i aldrig tidigare skådade nödsituationer i Afghanistan, Ukraina, Jemen och vidare.

Även efter rubrikerna inte längre uppmärksammas och folk börjar fokusera på annat, stannar RESCUEs team och gör skillnad. Dag ut och dag in befinner sig RESCUE på världens tuffaste platser och hjälper flyktingar och internflyktingar att överleva, återhämta sig och bygga upp sina liv.

Och det är inte bara vår personal som gör vårt arbete möjligt. Varje dag inspirerar flyktingarna och de fördrivna människorna vi betjänar hopp och gör ett bestående inflytande i sina samhällen.

Var med på vårt globala virtuella evenemang och fira det viktiga arbete som utförs av vårt RESCUEs team, modet och motståndskraften hos flyktingar och fördrivna människor runt om i världen.
