Safe Space for Children
A place to play and heal
Daily life in the aftermath of disaster is especially traumatic for children. The IRC moves quickly after a crisis to set up dedicated play areas with supervised art, sports and music activities, enabling young survivors to interact with each other and begin to heal. Games, toys, art material, sports equipment and other playthings help children cope with fear and stress and let kids get back to being kids.
Give a Rescue Gift now and your gift to the IRC will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million by generous friends of the IRC. Through Dec. 31, 2013.
Why they’ll Love a Rescue Gift
“Educating girls in underdeveloped countries is really important to both my mother and me, so I gave my mom a Rescue Gift. She said it was the best gift she’d ever gotten.”
