Mission Statement

Mercy Corps' mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty, and oppression worldwide by helping people build secure, productive, and just communities.

Description

Mercy Corps is an international relief and development organization working in over 41 countries worldwide. The goal of our work is to save and improve lives for people living in the world's toughest places.

We believe that communities are the best agents of their own change, which is why over 90% of our field staff come from the countries where they work.

We also believe that local markets are the best engines of sustainable change, and that success is build on the foundation of good governance.

Focusing on communities in transition, we seek to turn crisis into opportunity by helping communities:

  • Recover from disaster and become more resilient to future shocks
  • Develop economically, with a market-driven approach aimed towards improving food security, access to clean water, health conditions, and opportunities for education and jobs
  • Implement innovations that create major breakthroughs against poverty and stimulate lasting change.

Mercy Corps' global headquarters is in Portland, Oregon, but it has maintained a satellite office in Cambridge since 2004.
