Who we are
Mercy Corps is a global team of humanitarians, working together on the front lines of today’s biggest crises to create a future of possibility, where everyone can prosper.
Our mission: to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities.
In more than 40 countries around the world, our nearly 6,000 team members work side by side with people living through poverty, disaster, violent conflict and the acute impacts of climate change. We’re committed to creating global change through local impact — 85 percent of our team members are from the countries where they work.
We bring a comprehensive approach to every challenge, addressing problems from multiple angles. Thanks to support from our extended global community, we’ve provided $4 billion in lifesaving assistance to meet the urgent needs of more than 220 million people over nearly 40 years. We also go beyond emergency aid, partnering with local governments, forward-thinking corporations, social entrepreneurs and people living in fragile communities to develop bold solutions that make lasting change possible.
