Family Mercy House - Va med och hjälp barn

Give the children a better future

The vision is to keep the family together, that a child should not have to be separated from his biological mother.

If the mother is there’s always a grandmother or aunt nearby, someone who can love and take care of the child.

No child shall be subjected to end up with someone who wants to use them to labor.

You can help us today!

There are still many children who need help!!

You can help by providing a better life for a child by supporting Family Mercy House monthly, or by becoming a sponsor parent of a special child.

As a sponsor parent, your monthly donation will help a child with the necessities of life, until they reach 18 years old or they have finished their education and are self supporting.
