    Visit to Myanmar with IRC

    In February 2015, Joshua Redman traveled to Myanmar (also known as Burma) with the International Rescue Committee to visit IRC-run maternal health and community engagement programs. He spoke with villagers who were building roads and water systems based on community consensus gained through an election organized by the IRC—giving some villagers the chance to vote for the very first time.

     

    Joshua became an IRC Voice in 2013 as an advocate and spokesperson for the world’s most vulnerable populations. He says of his trip, “I have played music all over the world, but I have never before experienced something like this.”

     

    Watch a video of Joshua visiting projects in Myanmar below, and check out a photo essay of his travels on the IRC’s website, rescue.org.
