Our latest project: the Center of Mercy Medical Clinic
We have begun construction on the Center of Mercy Medical Clinic. It’s mission is to provide life-saving care to for expecting and new mothers in the remote villages of Uganda. Many women and their children needless die every year as a result of insufficient care during pregnancy. With your help, we can provide a place to care for the mothers and their young children.

Life Skills Center
Dear friends, with your support, we have secured five sewing machines and may begin teaching young people important trade skills! The temporary structure you see in the photos will serve as the center until the permanent structure in Kanimi village completes construction.
One of the orphans who sponsored tailoring and fashion school is the lead trainer at the Skills center. (She is the one who made the clothes you see me holding in the photos). The target group within our scope includes: vulnerable youth out of school and young women that were; victims of rape, defilement, domestic violence, forced marriages or divorce that are below 24 years.
The targeted individuals will be trained in tailoring clothes especially for vulnerable children, reusable sanitary pads, head scarfs, school uniforms, quilt bed covers, among others. We hope that once they are equipped with tailoring and other life skills, they will be empowered to address not only challenges of life but also earn a living.

Donate today to continue to support our mission!
We still have much to do for the Kamwengye District in Uganda, but we can get there with your help! Please consider sending us a donation via our American sister charity, Foundations of Jesus The Divine Mercy.
Caring for God’s children means meeting all of their needs: spiritual, physical, and psychological. We have completed a number of projects that have improved the quality of life in the Ugandan communities of Kamwengye-Busiriba and Kyamuhunga. We would welcome your help in accomplishing the projects we have planned for the future.
