Organization Mission

At Mercy Corps, we empower people to survive through crisis, build better lives and transform their communities for good. Our mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities.

Area of Focus

We are powered by the belief that a better world is possible.

Our strategy for change:

  • Focus on places in transition, where conflict, disaster, political upheaval or economic collapse present opportunities to challenge the status quo and build more secure, productive and just communities.
  • Provide emergency relief in times of crisis, then move quickly to help communities recover and build resilience to future shocks.
  • Promote sustainable change by supporting initiatives that are community-led, market-driven and promote good governance.
  • Seek innovation that creates major breakthroughs against poverty and lasting change in the places we work.

Mercy Corps is active in over 40 countries around the globe focusing on issues relating to: agriculture, children & youth, economic opportunity, education, health, and more.
