The global organization Mercy Corps extends its deepest sympathy to the families of the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris, France and Beirut, Lebanon. We are outraged and saddened by these acts of senseless violence that cost the lives of innocent people and injured scores more.

These attacks are horrific tragedies, and sadly similar to the kind of violence forcing millions of people to flee their homes. Mercy Corps is working hard to relieve the intense suffering of civilians in Syria and of the refugees seeking safety in neighboring countries and Europe.

As we mourn those killed and care for those wounded, let us also remember all individuals around the world who are deeply affected by violence and conflict.
