All human beings have the right to the necessities
regardless of their gender, age, religion, or ethnicity.

Mercy Without Limits (MWL), established in 2012, was created to initially bring humanitarian aid to displaced women and children in Syria. As MWL grew, they quickly expanded upon their work and were able to extend their reach further, opening offices in Türkiye, Jordan, Lebanon. Today, they have over 700 staff and volunteers worldwide, and provide multiple humanitarian programs across 20 countries.

MWL’s mission is to educate and empower women and children by giving them an effective role in constructing a better society. One of the many ways they empower women is to achieve self-sufficiency and financial independence through vocational trainings and financial literacy. They also provide them with psychosocial support activities and counseling to help them navigate the challenges of parenting and being the sole provider (widows) and support for their families.

Additionally, Mercy Without Limits is committed to providing vocational education and support to widows. MWL aims to empower women who have been displaced and come from struggling communities and who were not able to complete high school or college by providing them access to vocational training programs, with classes in subjects such as hairdressing, computer skills, soap production, food production, knitting and sewing. To this day, MWL is pleased to have been able to open two facilities in Syria where it has hired many of these widows as seamstresses; where they sew uniforms, lab coats and general clothing items for sale.

Since 2021, they’ve trained 280 women, out of those 75 women were engaged with on job training by contracting with workshops to work with, and 30 women are now employed within MWL’s own sewing workshops.

Emergency disaster relief

is another major aspect of the work they do. In 2023, they were able to bring humanitarian aid to affected areas following the Türkiye-Syria earthquakes, the Morocco earthquake, the Libya floods and turmoil in Gaza. Following the Turkiye-Syria earthquakes specifically, MWL maintained 140 camps serving 60,000 displaced families.

MWL has also distributed:


Hygiene kits


Bread bags


Hot meals


Food baskets

MWL repaired 4 water stations serving 14,150 people daily. Additionally, they provided 100,000 liters of fuel for hospitals and water stations. They also formed a cooperation agreement with the Syrian Engineers Association to assess the integrity of homes and buildings following the tragedy. By the summer, they have completed inspections of 100% of the structures in the greater Aleppo area - 161,740 homes and 41,884 commercial buildings.

MWL has prioritized swift action in light of the many emergency situations the world encountered this past year.

Their work supplied 218 food kits and 138 nonfood items to individuals affected by the Libya floods quickly following the destruction; and after the earthquake in Morocco, MWL’s team was able to provide both short-term and long-term relief in the form of temporary shelters (new tents) and repairing and rebuilding schools in the affected areas. They distributed 2,400 food baskets, mattresses and blankets to each shelter; along with 500 stoves following the disaster.

Assist Orphans

Among the challenges they have faced in the field, MWL has found that as orphans grow older, their families may require them to begin working to support their younger siblings, which can cause MWL to lose contact with them.

To assist orphans in these situations, MWL’s team tries to ensure their international staff and volunteers reach out to them consistently and to encourage them by providing them information about programs and tuition assistance to join any of their higher education programs wherever they are available. They do occasionally encounter challenges in reaching some of the more remote areas where the communities desperately need aid; however, by enlisting more volunteers local to these remote villages, they have been able to extend their care to them and distribute food, water and hygiene kits to inhabitants of those hard-to-reach areas.


Training is an essential element to utilizing the help of volunteers. MWL’s program coordinators overseas are in constant contact with volunteers, to ensure they are properly trained and well-equipped. The organization utilizes measurement tools to measure the success of projects and ensure volunteers are implementing the services.

The process is as follows:

  1. MWL will contract with consultants to conduct OCAT (organization capacity assessment tool) to be used as evidence focusing on four areas: organization development processes, people, infrastructure, and social capital development.
  2. Based on the OCAT report, MWL will start the improvement journey in terms of training sessions for staff, coaching for teams, and consulting for the organization.
  3. After ending the improvement journey, the consultants will measure the development levels based on the ending report to show the results.

Leading the way to a better world for women and children is a major aspiration, but something that is achievable with the help of others.

Through their efforts and the support they receive, Mercy Without Limits continues to relieve families following disasters and make real, lasting change in underserved communities around the world. And with increased support for their organization, they continue to expand their reach and relief.
