Since 1979, Mercy Corps has provided $1.7 billion in assistance to people in 107 nations. Our global programs are supported by headquarters in North America and Europe and field offices in some of the world’s most troubled and challenging regions: Failing states. Conflict zones. Countries recovering from natural disaster. We work in places where a child’s life is often at risk, where a woman’s education is usually ignored, and where a family’s livelihood is never a sure thing.
We are a team of 3,700 professionals helping turn crisis into opportunity for millions around the world. By trade, we are engineers, financial analysts, drivers, community organizers, project managers, public health experts, administrators, social entrepreneurs and logisticians. In spirit, we are activists, optimists, innovators and proud partners of the people we serve: Idealistic youth. Courageous mothers. Determined entrepreneurs. Hardscrabble farmers. Survivors of disaster or war. They live in tiny remote villages and in the slums of the world’s biggest cities.
