What we do

When the world needs us, we’re there — before, during or after an emergency.

  • Mercy Corps has responded to nearly every global emergency over the past 20 years.
  • Since 1979, we have provided $4 billion in lifesaving assistance throughout the world.
  • Today our team members are helping some 1.8 million people affected by the Syria crisis.

But we’re not just there during emergencies. We also build more resilient communities.

  • Last year, we helped nearly 28 million people in over 40 countries survive through crisis, build better lives and transform their communities for good.
  • Each year we infuse millions of dollars into local economies through small business loans and grants to provide livelihoods for the world’s most vulnerable people.
  • We are empowering more than 100,000 youth trapped by violent conflict to overcome the profound stress of war and become changemakers in their communities.
