TGIF Video: Mercy Corps

Hunger is something a lot of us have a hard time comprehending. Hungry? Sure. But hunger? World hunger? That seems like a much bigger issue. But how about how we see the people affected by hunger? Do we feel sorry for them or do we think of ways we can help them? Do we want to give them enough to “get by” or the tools to make a life of their own.

Mercy Corps: the Action Center to End Hunger is one of the largest international aid organizations working at fighting hunger worldwide.

Mercy Corps works amid disasters, conflicts, chronic poverty and instability to unleash the potential of people who can win against nearly impossible odds. Since 1979, Mercy Corps has provided more than $1.5 billion in assistance to people in 106 nations. Supported by headquarters in North America and Europe, the agency’s global programs employ 3,500 staff worldwide and reach more than 16.4 million people in more than 35 countries. Over the past five years, more than 89 percent of the agency’s resources have been allocated directly to programs that help people in need.
