Mercy Corps is horrified by the alarming continuation of violence committed against civilians in Israel and Gaza, and deeply concerned by the unfolding humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza.

As the crisis escalates, the urgent need for humanitarian assistance - and supplies including water, food and fuel - intensifies. Mercy Corps has worked in the West Bank and Gaza since 1986, providing humanitarian support including access to water, working with children and young people, and connecting people to economic opportunities in an area where unemployment is over 40 percent. We are working to restart our humanitarian programmes in Gaza and our team members there are committed to significantly ramping up much-needed lifesaving assistance as soon as it is safe to do so.

Around the globe, Mercy Corps teams are already on the ground where help is most needed. We work in more than 40 countries alongside communities as they prepare for, protect against, and recover from crisis. Your gift today will go where it is needed most.

86% of our expenses funded programme services over the last 5 years.
