Story

Mercy Corps are a team of 5,500+ humanitarians who partner with communities, corporations and governments to transform lives in 40+ countries around the world. Over the last 39 years Mercy Corps have provided life-saving assistance to more than 220 million people. Believing that communities are the best sources of their own change, 87% of the team work within the country they are from.

In Mongolia, for example, 1.6 million individuals live in rural areas heavily reliant on agriculture. Climate-related stressors are severely impacting an already harsh environment and a society suffering from undernutrition and poverty. Mercy Corps 44 humanitarians have provided agricultural products, an advanced weather information service and trained over 26,000 people in how to deal with climate changes in farming.

Dry summers and harsh winters, consequences of climate change, have degraded 70% of Mongolia’s pastoral land, seriously affecting Mongolians’ ability to effectively farm.

In a country so dependent on agriculture, which employs 1/3 of the country’s labour force, this has major repercussions.

If you, and we’d be hugely appreciative if you do, decide to donate to our chosen charity, @mercycorps , you will be helping Mercy Corps to fund humanitarians 𝗙𝗥𝗢𝗠 𝗠𝗢𝗡𝗚𝗢𝗟𝗜𝗔 to help teach and provide technological solutions to local farmers.

Instead of just shipping out foreign, trained, specialists to solve these problems, this offers a sustainable and effective solution to helping individuals and families adapt to their increasingly deteriorating farmland.

So, 𝗣𝗟𝗘𝗔𝗦𝗘 donate to this amazing cause, not only for Mongolian families like the one in the photo, but for families like them all over the world.
