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.

You made change possible!

Guatemala

While crises were happening throughout the year, and continue even today, you have helped to save and change the lives for many men, women, children - and whole communities - around the world.

Because of your compassion and generosity we were able to achieve so much in 2012. You made change possible!

The accomplishments shared below are a testament to the more than 70,000 donors (including you!) who’ve made this work possible. Because of you this is what we were able to do:

  • We staved off malnutrition in 23,585 Guatemalan mothers and infants.
  • In Yemen, food distributions are helping the most vulnerable — 50,000 single mothers, pregnant and nursing women, and children under five — survive since political uprisings interrupted imports and basic services.
  • In Iraq, we taught 5,500 women to read — and learn their rights in a newly democratic country.
  • Our teams in Mali helped 2,300 families survive the worst food shortage in decades.
  • In the new nation of South Sudan, school supplies and newly constructed classrooms are helping 13,969 children continue their education.
  • In Afghanistan, 2,000 women graduated from our job training classes.

To show our appreciation, we have put together a slideshow to share how much we were able to accomplish because of your contribution. Check out how you have changed and transformed lives!

And if you haven't received a free 2013 Mercy Corps calendar we still have some left! Just e-mail your address to fundraising@mercycorps.org and we will happily send you one!

On behalf of the millions of people our work has touched this year, thank you!

In gratitude,

Because of your compassion and generosity we were able to achieve so much in 2012. You made change possible!

The accomplishments shared below are a testament to the more than 70,000 donors (including you!) who’ve made this work possible. Because of you this is what we were able to do in the Horn of Africa as well as other parts of the world:

  • In Somalia, we helped more than 1.9 million people survive the Horn of Africa’s drought and famine by providing food, safe drinking water, clean sanitation facilities and protection for vulnerable women and girls in displacement camps.
  • In Ethiopia, our mobile health teams brought emergency food and medical care to more than 27,000 malnourished children in remote villages.
  • Our loans helped 193 Japanese entrepreneurs get back to business and provide jobs after their enterprises were damaged or destroyed by the 2011 tsunami.
  • In Iraq, we taught 5,500 women to read — and learn their rights in a newly democratic country.
  • We staved off malnutrition in 23,585 Guatemalan mothers and infants.

While crises were going on this year in the Sahel region, and continue even today, you have helped to save and change the lives for many men, women, children - and whole communities - in this part of the world.

Because of your compassion and generosity we were able to achieve so much in 2012. You made change possible!

The accomplishments shared below are a testament to the more than 70,000 donors (including you!) who’ve made this work possible. Because of you this is what we were able to do in Niger, Mali and the Sahel Region as well as other parts of the world:

  • In Niger, more than 23,000 people — many of them severely malnourished children — got the food they needed to survive the Sahel’s devastating drought until the next harvest.
  • In Mali, our teams helped 2,300 families survive the worst food shortage in decades. Food vouchers reached those most at-risk: families who’d fled their homes because of escalating political violence.
  • Our loans helped 193 Japanese entrepreneurs get back to business and provide jobs after their enterprises were damaged or destroyed by the 2011 tsunami.
  • In Iraq, we taught 5,500 women to read — and learn their rights in a newly democratic country.
  • We staved off malnutrition in 23,585 Guatemalan mothers and infants.
