HLA is pleased to announce its first major NGO, Mercy Corps, has joined as a corporate member, enabling its employees to become individual members and receive full benefits of membership.

Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, it partners to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within.

Mercy Corps works to:

  • Focus on places in transition, where conflict, disaster or instability present opportunities to challenge the status quo and build more secure, productive and just communities.
  • Provide emergency relief in times of crisis, then move quickly to help communities recover and build resilience to future shocks.
  • Promote sustainable change by supporting initiatives that strengthen local markets, promote good governance and are led by the community.
  • Seek innovation that creates major breakthroughs against poverty and lasting change in the places it works.
