Afghanistan is a land with a turbulent history. Today the Afghan culture endures, reflecting the resilience and tenacity of the Afghan people. Operation Mercy is working together with local communities in many effective programs, such as, reducing infant mortality with Birth and Life Saving Skills –BliSS, providing leadership training and empowering women through the development of the Self Help Group Approach.

The Self Help Group (SHG) project empowers women to help raise their family’s standard of living, through basic health awareness, business training, human rights, education and literacy, which in turn allows women to positively influence society.
Many children delight in books. We publish and distribute 'good books' for Afghan children with positive cultural themes.
One of Afghanistan's greatest needs is developing strong governance and a civil society mindset .We develop leadership and management skills through training seminars rooted in local culture for university students and professionals from all sectors of society. Our workshops are tailor-made for each specific institution and are geared to empower the Afghan people in their own context.
Birth Life Saving Skills (BLiSS) training continues to be tremendously effective in providing safer environments for pregnant mothers and infants both during and after childbirth. Our participatory educational training is being modeled and taught amongst other NGO’s working with women in Afghanistan to reduce mother and infant mortality rates. With over 85% of Afghan women delivering their babies at home by untrained attendants this education is saving lives. Training men and women to teach BLiSS is also reproducing this valuable work.
The Wakhi people live in villages in the north eastern and poorest part of the Wakhan valley in Afghanistan.
Our project in the Wakhan is multifaceted, with BLiSS training, immunisation programs, and varied education and health trainings. By working with the Wakhi people, communities are becoming empowered to make positive changes and child and maternal mortality have shown reductions.
Preventable diseases caused by inadequate sanitation, lack of clean drinking water and poor hygiene practices are addressed by our participatory, learner-centered WaSH program in the outskirts of Kabul.
