Mercy Corps Europe
Mercy Corps responds to crises and goes beyond disaster response to help people in the most vulnerable communities. In the aftermath of every major natural disaster they develop longterm local solutions to prepare communities for the future. Over the last 40 years, Mercy Corps have been tackling the world’s toughest challenges in partnership with communities, governments and business, finding flexible and innovative solutions. As a global organisation, Mercy Corps has provided £4 billion in lifesaving assistance to more than 220 million people. That has given us a deep understanding of the complex challenges facing our most vulnerable communities, and the approaches required to overcome them. While each and every community is unique, we are able to tap into a significant body of knowledge and expertise across our teams and the work we do in each country is informed by our partners there: local community members, government officials, and other changemakers who are invested in transforming their communities for good.
Mercy Corps exists to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities.
Mercy Corps is a leading global organisation powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, Mercy Corps partners to put bold solutions into action- helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Now, and for the future.
