Help Mercy Corps Turn Crisis Into Opportunity
 
Life can change for millions of families in an instant: natural disasters take loved ones and the outbreak of war drives families from their homes. When the unthinkable happens, Mercy Corps delivers rapid, lifesaving aid to hard-hit communities and then teams up with them to build back stronger. project reportread updates from the field
Help Haitians rebuild after Hurricane Matthew
 
The majority of Haitians rely solely on farming for their food and income, and these families have been hit hard: Hurricane Matthew comes on the heels of the country's worst drought in 50 years, and many people had not yet fully recovered from the earthquake in 2010 and lacked access to the food they needed to survive. Mercy Corps will provide clean water, facilitate cash programs to stimulate the local economy, and help farmers recoup damaged crops and livestock to help rebuild for the future
Provide Relief for Syrian Refugees
 
Over 4 million Syrians have fled the civil war in their country for the relative safety of neighboring countries. The flow of refugees into camps and host communities continues to swell - far beyond initial expectations - and strain limited resources in the region. Mercy Corps is helping refugees and community members in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, and Greece by providing essentials like clothing and blankets, digging wells and building safe places for children to play and be kids. project reportread updates from the field

The most recent estimates are that 2 million people have been displaced from their homes. project reportread updates from the field
Saving Lives in Niger, Mali & Sahel Region
 
After years of unpredictable rains and poor harvests, along with existing intense poverty, 6 million people in the Sahel Region face significant food shortages this year. The UN and Government of Niger have both declared this situation a serious crisis. Mercy Corps teams work in the most at-risk areas, and have expanded programs to Mali, where 3.5 million experience chronic hunger. We help communities deal with effects of drought, soaring food prices, malnutrition and low food levels. project reportread updates from the field
Breast Feeding Saves Lives
 
Every second a child in Indonesia dies before reaching her 5th birthday. Millions more infants are at high risk of growth & mental retardation due to malnutrition. But there is an easy & inexpensive solution: Breastfeeding. An estimated 100,000 children in Indonesia under the age of 5 could be saved if all babies were exclusively breastfed in the first 6 months of life & continued breastfeeding until the age of 2 years. Your donations will help Mercy Corps expand this program & save more lives. project reportread updates from the field
