We are a volunteer-run charity that funds health and wellness initiatives for communities in Northern Uganda.
We envision accessible healthcare for the communities with which we partner.
Following the death of a child named Mercy due to malaria, a preventable illness, The Mercy Project was founded based on these philosophies:
- Our activities help build, stock, and staff medical clinics.
- We listen to our partners and respond to their needs, respecting their agency.
- We support healthcare abroad by promoting wellness at home.
- We strive to be ethical in all our fundraising efforts.
We refuse to be overwhelmed by the challenges of poverty.
