More about the IRC:
The International Rescue Committee is a global, nongovernmental, humanitarian organization that 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. At work today in over 40 countries and in 22 U.S. cities, the IRC restores safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home. The IRC has put innovation to practice by starting programs that help refugees start businesses in the United States. In Salt Lake City, the International Rescue Committee provides business training and loans through Spice Kitchen, New Roots, and the Microenterprise Development Program.
