  • PROJECTS

    St. Jude Children’s Home is a residence for orphaned, abandoned, and disabled children, located in the Gulu Region of Northern Uganda. Their mission is to provide a loving environment where children have access to comprehensive care including education, health services as well as emotional and spiritual support. In July 2009, The Mercy Project partnered to create the St. Jude Health Agreement which included establishing a permanent first aid clinic. The Mercy Project currently funds an on-site nurse, a nurse’s assistant, medical supplies, and emergency coverage; while also assisting in healthcare seminars.

    Sports Outreach Ministry Gulu is a community organization working to strengthen the community of Gulu through economic and personal empowerment programs. They operate several community centres, with The Mercy Project working with the SOM Community Centre in the Koro sub-region. Their daycare, The Mango Tree Daycare, provides education, food, and a friendly environment for its children. Recognizing the need to enhance the level of healthcare provided to the children, TMP provided support for medical care, which included treatments for infections and for malaria, and de-worming. TMP is currently supporting SOM in the building of a new clinic and daycare.
