IRC Board of Directors

IRC’s Board of Directors are all volunteers who are personally involved in providing aid to the organization. They form a team with a diverse background, including careers in the medical, ministerial, legal and construction professions. The one thing they all have in common is a deep desire to relieve poverty and suffering in some of Central America’s poorest communities. The primary function of the Board of Directors is to make sure the vision and mission of IRC is being fulfilled to the best of its ability. IRC does not have any employees, allowing 100% of all donations given to be used directly for its projects.
