When fighting erupted in Bentiu one year ago, more than 400,000 people ran from the violence in just the first month. Mercy Corps staff, most of whom are from South Sudan, were among those forced to flee — leaving their homes and the office behind. Just like their neighbors and friends, many Mercy Corps team members have been victims of this war.

In the lush, green mountains of Haiti, agriculture is the lifeblood of families — many of whom have passed down their land and farming techniques through generations. But something is threatening their rural way of life.

Trees have all but disappeared in Haiti — less than two percent of the land is currently forested. This rapid deforestation has consequences that spread far and wide. Over-planting and a lack of diversity in crops has caused the land to cave in on itself.

Five years after the island nation’s devastating earthquake, owning a business is still a struggle in Haiti’s informal economy.

Jobs at large businesses, along with steady salaries, are almost impossible to find, so most people man stalls along the streets of Port-au-Prince or own small businesses offering services or goods to neighbors and people passing by.

The tiny businesses that are most common in Haiti provide a minimal survival wage, but they are so small that an entire business can be easily derailed by one unexpected expense or setback.

Liberia, January 2, 2015

Our team in Liberia is working hard to equip two million people with the information they need to protect themselves from Ebola. These team members are more than response workers — they are members of the same communities they're helping.

Forty-two of our 47 staff on the ground are Liberian. Their courageous and determined efforts to end this outbreak and help their country recover are at the heart of our response.

Nana Balki’s soft voice carries easily over the women gathered in front of her. The mothers sit on mats in the small village courtyard, infants swaddled in their arms and toddlers playing on their laps.

Nana is discussing what to do if their children get sick, punctuating her points with sweeping arm gestures made all the more dramatic under her long burgundy hijab.
