Mercy Corps is a global team of humanitarians who partner with communities, corporations and governments to transform lives around the world. Their mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities. Through close collaboration with community members and a wide variety of organizations, they put bold solutions into action and help people triumph over adversity. For the refugee who dreams of rebuilding her home, for the mother who wants a healthy future for her children — for millions of people filled with the power of possibility — they connect people to the resources they need to build better, stronger lives. Mercy Corps works with the most vulnerable communities across 40+ countries and have provided $4 billion in life saving assistance to more than 220 million people over the past 39 years.
