International Rescue Committee
Every year, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives.
We began our relationship with the IRC five years ago through our NYC office, designing their Global Annual Report along with a Crisis Response Report. Most recently we completed its Global and UK offices’ Annual Reports in which we worked closely with the IRC’s teams in New York and London. The results are two sister documents that employ carefully considered imagery to represent the full complexity of the situations that IRC works.
This year’s report’s main focus is on the resettlement of refugees. In 2016, the number of people displaced by conflict alone surpassed 65 million. Most of these people will never return home. Instead they will rebuild their lives as best they can in foreign cities, towns and villages alongside local populations.
IRC’s 2016 Annual Report documents the vital support that they offer – support that makes an immediate difference to people’s lives – and shows how they provide economic support, education and skills training to help refugees not just survive but recover and thrive alongside their host communities – so both may prosper.
