Born: February 2005
Mercy is a young girl from Northern Uganda, an area devastated by civil war and the LRA. Tragically, both of Mercy’s parents died from HIV/AIDS when she was young leaving her a total orphan. Mercy and her two cousins Mercy and Oliver thankfully came to Calo Me Lare together.
Now at Calo Me Lare “Village of Redemption” Mercy is safe, has nutritious meals, attends school, has access to medical attention and receives spiritual/character mentorship.
Mercy enjoys reading books and playing with friends.

Northern Uganda has suffered through 25 years of war due to the insurgency of Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army. The unrest has destabilized the region for decades prohibiting it from developing an infrastructure to support its people. As a result of this war, and the ongoing epidemic of AIDS and malaria, there is estimated to be over 3 million orphans in Uganda. Project Hope Worldwide’s work in this region has involved establishing an orphanage, schools, a medical clinic, vocational training programs, and local churches to support the people.
