Mercy Hands Europe (MHEurope) is a women-led international non-profit organization registered in Geneva, Switzerland, since 2019. It is the sister organization of Mercy Hands for Humanitarian Aid, the biggest local NGO in Iraq founded in 2004.
MH’s deep national presence, field experience, and knowledge of local contexts, and MHEurope’s subject-matter expertise, programme managers’ experience, and contacts with Swiss, European and international institutions, creates a strategic and unique alliance to promote strong, sustainable, and context-related projects.
Mercy Hands Europe works to safeguard dignity, sustain human rights and build sustainable futures for people, particularly those who are the most vulnerable. We implement development projects in disaster affected areas and impoverished communities in Syria and Iraq, either directly through field missions, our sister organization, or other local partners.
We aspire to live in a society where justice prevails, law rules, individual and group rights are preserved, differences are acknowledged and welcomed, people work together to develop and sustain resources for future generations, and man-made disasters are virtually non-existent.
