Mercy Corps

Mercy Corps exists to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities. Mercy Corps helps people survive, recover and become self-sufficient. We partner with the people we serve to help them recover from disasters and conflicts, secure peace, grow more food, improve health, educate and protect children, empower women and start businesses that improve the standard of living for families and communities.

As we ring in the New Year, we spend time reviewing what has been done in 2012. Because of you, we at Mercy Corps were able to do some real life-changing work this year!

You are the reason we were able to provide emergency food in the Sahel region, vocational training in Afghanistan, and Hurricane Sandy relief in Haiti -- among our many other projects and programs around the world. Thank you.

We like to see the people you impacted, and I bet you do too. Over 17,000 photos were collected this year and we would like to share some of them with you!

Check out our slide show of the ten best images from 2012 and witness photos of:

  • A community using the Mercy Corps-sponsored well in Niger to help with the drought and resulting hunger crisis.
  • Wiam, a seven-year-old girl living with just a suitcase and a cardboard box of belongings in the Za'atari refugee camp in Jordan.
  • Jhon, during his training as a mechanical engineer in our rehabilitation program in Colombia. Jhon escaped life as a child soldier with the FARC militants.
  • Thirteen-year-old Donatien on his daily trek to fetch water. He and his family fled to this new village during attacks by the Lord' Resistance Army in the Central African Republic.

And many others!

These images capture the resilient and strong-willed spirit of those we work with, but there is still so much to be done.

As you consider your end-of-year giving, I encourage you to donate to a Mercy Corps project through Global Giving. Choose this one or pick a different project to make a lifesaving difference for families in need:

With you, in 2013, we will continue to make it a brighter, healthier year for families in the world’s most desperate places. With your support, we can make it happen - together!

In gratitude,

Carlene Deits

You are the reason we were able to provide emergency food in the Sahel region, vocational training in Afghanistan, Hurricane Sandy relief in Haiti, and help more than 1.9 million people survive the Horn of Africa's drought and famine -- among our many other projects and programs around the world. Thank you.

We like to see the people you impacted, and I bet you do too. Over 17,000 photos were collected this year, and we would like to share some of them with you!

Check out our slide show of the ten best images from 2012 and witness photos of:

  • A young woman benefiting from Mercy Corps' emergency food aid in Yemen.
  • Wiam, a seven-year-old girl living with just a suitcase and a cardboard box of belongings in the Za'atari refugee camp in Jordan.
  • A community using the Mercy Corps-sponsored well in Niger to help with the drought and resulting hunger crisis.
