Every year we work to ensure families in the hardest-to-reach corners of the world can overcome the obstacles they face. So when we hire photographers to capture our programs in action, it means tapping into the determination, strength and spirit of the families we work alongside every day.

Our photo manager combed through the thousands of images we received this year to pick 10 of his favorites. One thing rings true for all of them: Our work isn't about us, it's about the people we serve. Click through the album for a glimpse into some of the lives we've championed in 2015: http://ow.ly/VSqpz
We commission thousands of photos annually, and each one tells a story. View our top picks from this year and learn about some of the people on whose behalf we've worked so hard in 2015.

Woman in Tajikistan show the messages sent by the mHealth services to her neighbor, especially one concerning breastfeeding. Mercy Corps rolled out the health initiative in the beginning of 2015. Through the program, 1,600 women who subscribed to the services receive key messages on health, nutrition and family planning issues twice a month.

Elena and Maryan took the children and fled their home when artillery fire between Ukranian government and non-government forces drew close. Elena's parents, however, refused to leave, and just two days later, both were killed and the home severely damaged by a direct artillery hit. Mercy Corps experts assessed Elena and Maryan's damaged home with the city mayor and today, repairs are underway. “So much anger and hatred built up in this war," Maryan said. "But when you busy your hands with work on the house, you can feel the anger dissipating, losing its edge.” Read more: http://ow.ly/UDg0k
The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has triggered a massive humanitarian crisis. Mercy Corps is responding by providing cash, small-business development grants and repairing homes damaged by the conflict.

Sami is just one of nearly four million Syrian refugees who are struggling to create new lives far from home. When he first arrived at Jordan's Zaatari refugee camp, he was lonely and didn't have anything to do with his time. He was a student in Syria, but when the war hit, he had to leave his home, his studies and his dreams for the future behind.

Through volunteer work at one of Mercy Corps' youth centers, Sami has turned his experience around. Now, he has renewed hope and a sense of purpose. Learn more about Sami's story: http://ow.ly/VSqJw
Sami hated life in the refugee camp when he arrived. Now, two years later, he’s helping other young people shift their perspective and dream for the future.

Meseret is a mother to three young children and has learned new recipes through Mercy Corps’ work in her village. The program encourages families to eat a diverse diet that includes a fresh eggs and a variety of healthy vegetables like carrots, leafy greens, beets and tomatoes, in addition to traditional beans and flatbread.
Now everyone in Meseret’s family enjoys preparing meals together, and she says her children don't get sick as often and are growing stronger everyday.

Fatoumata depends solely on gardening to feed and support her family, including her two grandchildren. However, last year, her gardening association in Ansongo, Mali had to leave half of their garden empty because not enough seeds were available. Through a Mercy Corps program, her group was able to purchase tons of potato, okra, chili pepper, onion and tomato seeds. “I’m truly moved because I hope to make a real income once we share our harvest,” she said. "I intend to use all the income made from my garden to invest in my family.” Learn more about how your support is helping fight hunger around the world. http://ow.ly/UDfJA
