Life can change for millions of families in an instant: natural disasters take loved ones and the outbreak of war drives families from their homes. When the unthinkable happens, Mercy Corps delivers rapid, lifesaving aid to hard-hit communities.

We have responded to almost every global disaster in the last 20 years, including the Japan tsunami, Haiti earthquake, hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa, Indian Ocean tsunami, and most recently, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Right now, our seasoned emergency responders are on the ground in South Sudan and the Central African Republic working to distribute critical supplies and protect families uprooted by conflict.

We're also working to support nearly two million people affected by the crisis in Syria, a long-term humanitarian disaster with no end in sight. Learn more about our ongoing response to the Syrian refugee crisis ▸
