Our work

Our global emergency response team stands at the ready to respond to disasters across the U.S. in times of extreme need, such as after Hurricane Katrina and the devastation of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Given the monumental scale of destruction and the overwhelming needs caused by that crisis, Mercy Corps has been working hard to support relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts in Puerto Rico.

We also supported several organisations that helped communities in Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey. We primarily focused on helping organisations that have a deep history in the Houston area working with vulnerable, at-risk and under-served populations.

Our U.S. programmes include:
