What are the major organizations out there for genocide victims?

I have a persuasive speech coming up, and I have to convince my audience to help genocide victims! I'm trying to search for organizations, but I'm not getting to much.

Prior to answering, allow me to extend a hearty "Well done" in the selection of this topic for your persuasive speech.  It is a timely one, as the presence of genocide is a blight on the world.  Your bringing attention to this topic is wonderful.  I think that you can focus on many different organizations that provide relief and help to genocide victims.  Doctors without Borders is an organization that goes into war torn countries and provides free medical care to those who sorely need it.  I think patronage of this organization is noble as their work is truly the work of the divine.  Avega- Agahozo is an organization that is dedicated to helping Rwandan refugees work through the intense pain and trauma caused by the genocide there.  This organization helps widows, orphans, and children who have become the heads of their households.  The Red Cross/ Red Crescent Society is an internationally recognized symbol of help to those who are in need, a haven in the heartless world of genocide.   These might be a good starting point in your attempts to convince your colleagues of the importance of helping these organizations who help those who are in the truest sense of need.
