MercyBakery- About Us

About Us

"Charity does not decrease wealth." - Sahih Muslim

About Us:

Mercy Bakery is an idea that was founded on the principle that people around the world should have access to the most basic form of sustenance: bread.
Mercy Bakery is the brainchild of a group of volunteers from the New York / Yemen-based organization Humanity for Relief and Development (HRD).
Humanity for Relief and Development (HRD) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. MercyBakery is one of many HRD’s projects. Please visit our main site at for more info.

Our Goal :

Our mission is to provide free, public bakeries around the world for those in need. The first ever branch of Mercy Bakery was opened up in Sana’a, Yemen in August of 2018. Our goal is to provide at least 2,000 loaves of bread a day to families in need, therefore providing a minimum of 60,000 loaves a month. With an operating cost of $3000 a month, which includes supplies, maintenance, and salaries for the staff, that amounts to less than 3 cents a loaf!

The great staff of Mercy Bakery in Yemen is comprised six strong young female Yemeni orphans.
