For over 35 years, ARC has worked with refugees across the globe, in areas like water and sanitation infrastructure, shelter, primary and reproductive health, livelihood support, education, social enterprise and more. We work with people who are suffering through the most difficult times in their lives, reaching over 3 million people each year with lifesaving services. Our work takes place in Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda, Somalia, Pakistan, Thailand, Myanmar, Jordan, and Syria, with emergency interventions deployed when appropriate. Our programs are as diverse as the people we serve, but they all work together for the same goal: to help people take back control of their lives.
