International Relief Teams
International Relief Teams is a nonprofit humanitarian organization dedicated to alleviating human suffering worldwide and in the United States. IRT specializes in two complementary sets of activities: disaster response and building healthy communities.
During disasters, IRT deploys medical and reconstruction teams, provides supplies, and finances the restoration of infrastructure. IRT builds healthy communities through medical training programs; medical missions to low-income countries, including surgical and eyeglass teams; shipments of medicines to rural hospitals and clinics; and health, nutrition, and education support for vulnerable populations.
Since 1988, IRT has provided $6.37 million in volunteer services and $307 million in medicines and supplies to families in need in 68 countries worldwide.
