Program areas at Mercy Corps

Livelihood- Mercy Corps helps build strong local economies by investing in the jobs and markets that serve as the best engines of long-term recovery. Across the globe, especially in countries affected by conflict or crises, Mercy Corps works with individuals and communities to achieve financial inclusion and independence. This year we helped more than 165,000 people around the world gain access to financial education, build money-management skills, and learn new ways to invest in their own futures. In Guatemala, we are supporting 30,000 micro, small and medium enterprises through a network called Micromentor that connects entrepreneurs and volunteer business mentors.

Humanitarian assistance - recovery: After a crisis, Mercy Corps works to meet people's immediate needs while sparking recovery through tools that help them build a stronger future. We connected more than 1 million people around the world to emergency cash, cash vouchers, mobile money, or stored value cards that allow families to make their own decisions around what matters most. Our response in Somalia is reaching 190,000 Somalis across the country with water, food, hygiene services, seeds, tools and income-generating activities, while in Nigeria, we're helping to strengthen the livelihoods of more than 110,000 families.

Humanitarian assistance - relief: In the wake of a major disaster, Mercy Corps' first priority is to meet urgent needs, such as food, water, clothing and basic hygiene items. This year, Mercy Corps' work reached 11 million people facing conflict, including more than 3.8 million refugees and locals from host communities in 24 countries. We are providing food assistance to more than 240,800 people in Yemen and are reaching 100,000 people in northeast Nigeria with electronic food vouchers each month. We also connected more than 1.3 million people around the world to clean water and provided hygiene education for more than 1 million people.
