Welcome to the Lithuanian Mercy Lift Archives


From 1990 to 2010, the U.S. volunteer organization Lithuanian Mercy Lift (LML) provided Lithuania with over $126,690,425 worth of aid and shipped 612 forty-foot containers duringthe first 20 years following the Soviet Union‘s collapse. LML‘s purpose was to help Lithuania‘s sick and needy in a time of crisis and to help stabilize the Lithuanian healthcare system after the Soviet Union‘s collapse. LML's Accomplishments reached across over 14 types of healthcare and humanitarian needs such as tuberculosis prevention, breast cancer prevention, newborn care and much more. Those you have helped in Lithuania are extremely grateful!

At the closing ceremony in Vilnius, Lithuania, on July 1, 2011,  the Parliament of the Republic of Lithuania, dignitaries and many Lithuanians marked LML‘s contributions.  The program book titled "LML – 20 Years With Lithuania" shows LML through their eyes.  The 20 year program book includes:

  • The Beginning
  • LML Programs
  • Members
  • LML 20 Year Accomplishments
  • Letters of Thanks and Appreciation From Lithuania

This publication was produced as a joint project by members of Lithuania's Signatory and of LML to commemorate LML’s achievements in its 20 years of aid to Lithuania.  It was published for the closing ceremony.

When the U.S. Embassy in Lithuania gathered information about the aid provided to Lithuania by organizations in the U.S., LML prepared this record.  


A video excerpt also captures the heartfelt thanks Lithuanians extended to LML in the closing ceremony.


LML‘s 10th Anniversary commemorative booklet provides an English and Lithuanian account of LML‘s accomplishments at this milestone.


Throughout the years, LML received many letters of appreciation. For example, a letter from Lithuania‘s President Valdas Adamkus.
