Message of peace
When we think of peace, the ideas and imagery are indelible: smiling faces, bountiful fields and people working together. However, for millions of people around the world, peace is only a distant dream. In places like Sudan, Afghanistan and Iraq, families know little but violence and heartache.
Progress requires peace. Mercy Corps promotes greater understanding in conflict-torn places such as Iraq and Sudan by including all segments of the community. We fund projects that bring different groups together to solve common problems. Our trainings in Kosovo, Colombia, Guatemala and elsewhere give local citizens concrete skills to resolve conflicts peacefully.
