MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
At IRT, our mission and focus is to alleviate human suffering by aiding victims of disasters and building healthy communities. In times of disasters, we rely on partnerships with other international organizations to achieve maximum impact with your donations. In this way, we establish clear and appropriate roles, avoid duplication of efforts, and maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of our response.
MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO OUR PARTNERS IN COMPASSION
I want to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you!
Your generosity and compassion this past year helped alleviate suering for thousands of families, both here and abroad. rough your support, we restored homes, and more importantly, the hope and spirit of low-income and elderly victims of Superstorm Sandy in New Jersey – families who cannot recover on their own. Our work there will continue throughout 2015.
Message from the Executive Director
I am very pleased to report that International Relief Teams has just celebrated its silver anniversary, having now provided 25 years of service to victims of disaster, poverty, and neglect both here and abroad.
