Take hunger off the table.

Nearly 850 million people — more than the the populations of the U.S. and Europe combined — go hungry every day. Yet there is enough food for every person in the world to have enough to eat. 

Hunger kills more people each year than AIDS, malaria and TB combined. The World Health Organization considers hunger the greatest single threat to global public health. Malnutrition endangers people’s lives, health, mental capacity, economic productivity and well-being. Those most vulnerable are babies, children, pregnant mothers and elderly and displaced people. Malnourished children can suffer diminished mental and physical capacity for their entire lives.

Mercy Corps believes that every person deserves to have enough nutritious food to live a healthy and productive life — the foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty and building stronger communities in the long term. Our teams treat malnourished infants, provide tools for farmers to diversify crops, and help mothers grow nutritious food to ensure a healthy future for their children. You can help us save lives today and pioneer solutions that ensure every person has enough food to live a healthy, productive life.
