Sir Patrick Stewart showed his support of refugees in a new video from the International Rescue Committee.
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) “questions, educates and gives the vulnerable a voice. The IRC’s storytelling cuts to the heart of humanitarian crises and inspires global audiences to act.
“The International Rescue Committee helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.”
“Did you know,” said Stewart, “that right now over seventy million people have had to leave their homes due to war and disaster? That’s roughly the size of the United Kingdom.
“I can’t imagine what it would be like to have to suddenly leave my home, where to take my family, how to survive, and most importantly, who will help us. Well, the answer is the International Rescue Committee. This wonderful organization was Albert Einstein‘s genius idea. They focus on some of the world’s toughest places – Syria, Yemen, South Sudan – and deliver food and shelter, medical care. They also bring education and job training, and work to rebuild communities.
“Please join me in supporting the International Rescue Committee. They help families just like yours and mine to survive, recover, and live their lives with hope and dignity.”
