Dear Theresa,

42.5 million people.

That’s how many people around the world you helped in 2014.

I’ve written to you so much this year about crisis — and about the families who need you. War, disaster and disease are creating new global challenges every single day.

But on each of those days, supporters like you have reached out to help. And today, I want to share the difference you’ve made to turn a year of crisis into one of hope.

Thanks to you, 2.5 million people are surviving the Syria crisis with safer shelter, warm clothing and clean water.
Thanks to you, 1.25 million people have a safe source of clean drinking water.
Thanks to you, 35,000 young people followed their dreams of getting an education.
Thanks to you, 306,000 people received treatment for malnutrition and food to keep their families healthy.

Theresa, these are just a few examples of how you’ve helped families survive emergencies and build stronger futures this year.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to meet the people you’ve touched and see all the ways that, together, we brought positive change to our world in 2014.

Thank you for being a part of our family. I look forward to all we can do together in 2015.

Warmest wishes,

Dan O'Neill, Mercy Corps Founder
