See our Gifts

In the aftermath of conflict and natural disaster, the American Refugee Committee (ARC) meets the health care and immediate basic needs of affected communities. When conditions stabilize, ARC assists communities in recovery and helps those who fled return to their homes and rebuild their lives.


The American Refugee Committee works with refugees, displaced people, and those at risk to help them survive crises and rebuild lives of dignity, health, security and self-sufficiency.


Today, ARC works in 9 countries around the world helping victims of war, civil conflict and natural disaster rebuild their lives. ARC aims to build programs that: utilize the knowledge and experience of the people they serve; improve the lives of people in the community; train survivors and build the capacity of the community; and sustain themselves years into the future.

ARC programs in Africa and Asia provide health care, clean water, shelter repair, legal aid, trauma counseling, microcredit, community development services, and repatriation assistance to more than one million people, annually. ARC bases its relationship with uprooted peoples on mutual respect and a compassionate exchange of knowledge and values.


In 2006, ARC improved living conditions and provided the opportunity for a future to nearly 3 million refugees, displaced people, and others in need.
