Not On Our Watch Gives $260K

614Hollywood charitable organization, Not On Our Watch, has given the International Rescue Committee (IRC) $260 million to help provide health services at clinics across North Darfur.

George Rupp, president of the IRC, responded to the gesture by stating:

We are grateful to Not On Our Watch for putting a spotlight on humanitarian crises and generating significant resources to assist some of the world’s most vulnerable people. This donation will help IRC aid workers in Darfur to expand essential health care programs for some 200,000 people, including sick and malnourished children who too often succumb to preventable and treatable diseases.

Not On Our Watch was founded by Don Cheadle, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, David Pressman, and Jerry Weintraub.

The IRC is a global leader in humanitarian assistance, providing much needed aid to refugees in 42 countries – including Sudan since 2004.

    Thank you for bringing us such encouraging news. Just wanted to note, however, that Not On Our Watch donated $260,000 to the IRC—still generous, of course, but not quite the same figure :)
