Who we are

Mercy Corps is a global team of humanitarians working together on the front lines of today’s biggest crises to create a future of possibility, where everyone can prosper.

Our mission: to alleviate suffering, poverty, and oppression by helping people build secure, productive, and just communities.

If you are driven by the desire to make a real difference and believe in people’s ability to create their own futures, we invite you to explore the many opportunities we have to make an impact.

We bring a comprehensive approach to every challenge, addressing problems from multiple angles. And we go beyond emergency aid, partnering with local governments, forward-thinking corporations, social entrepreneurs, and people living in fragile communities to develop bold solutions that make lasting change possible.
