Mercy Ministries Uganda

GIVE A CHILD HOPE FOR A BETTER FUTURE BY SPONSORING ONE FOR $50 PER MONTH. PLEASE CONTACT US ABOUT SPONSORSHIP AT THE LINK BELOW. We are a Christ-Centered orphanage in the Slums of Kibuli in Kampala, Uganda.

Our desire is to show Christ's love to the neglected, mistreated, and suffering children in this area. We want to provide these children with a safe home where they feel loved and where they can know the love of Christ, food, Education, clothing and medical care. Just as God pours out His mercy on His children, we desire to demonstrate Christ-like mercy to these needy children of Kibuli. We received our first children in 2010, and since then God has continued to bless this ministry as we make a difference in the lives of hurting children. It brings us great joy to see the changes that take place in them here at the children's home. They become children who are happy, feel special and loved, feel secure in a family, and know the love of Jesus. We need the prayers and support of people like you who have big hearts for God and for children to make this possible. Your support provides food and clothing, bedding, medical care, educational opportunities and Important life-skills training. Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. Imagine your Child without food…without clothing or the opportunity to receive a quality education. Imagine your Child without embrace and an affirmation… without anyone to demonstrate to him/her the love of God! By investing in the life of a child, you could make an unimaginable impact. The child you sponsor could help lift his community out of poverty, save lives as a doctor, or become a prominent leader in her country. It’s happened for real children sponsored though Mercy Ministries Uganda. Partner with us and make a difference in the world. “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” (James 1:27)

Mission: Ministering love and compassion to vulnerable and marginalized Orphaned children for a morally upright generation

[06/22/13]   You see, poverty causes children to have very low self-esteem, low aspirations. The big difference that sponsorship makes is that it expands children’s views about their own possibilities.

Eric Opendi, Birthday: February 15, 2004

I was born in a Catholic family and my father had two wives. I am a child of the second wife and I was the first born of my mother. In 2008 my father fell sick and was taken to the hospital for a medical checkup and it was discovered that he had a heart problem. My father started becoming weaker and weaker and he eventually passed away in 2009.

I was 9 years old when my father passed away and I was in primary 2. When my father died life became hard for us. My mother works as an office cleaner and the little salary she earns cannot take care of us. I still want to continue with my education but my Mother is not able to meet my education requirements and this pains me so much. When I see other Children who still have both their parents living and they are schooling I completely lose hope.

In 2011 my mother met some preachers who shared the word of God with her and she gave her life to Christ. We started going to the Pentecostal Church where they have a program called Mercy Ministries Uganda. This ministry gives us food and clothes once in awhile and also shared the word of God with us.

My dream is to study and become a social worker so that I would help many orphans and street children who are desperate and without any help in our community. Thank you for helping children like us who have no parents and they have no one to show them the love of a parent.

[06/03/13]   I would like to express my gratitude to all the people who have liked our page. Please, pray for our Orphans to get sponsors. Thanks and God bless you.

Reagan Kawuki, Birthday: September 20, 2003

I was born in a Christian family and I am the second born child in the family. My parents gave birth to four children but two died when they were very young. My father fell sick in 2008 and when he was taken to the hospital, I never saw him alive again. He was admitted in the hospital for three months and he eventually died of HIV/AIDS.

This was the beginning of my suffering and pain. My mother is still alive but always sickly. She is also HIV positive and life is very hard for us. My elder sister is the one who sells fried ground nuts and gets some money to buy food for my mother and me. Last year while some Christians were preaching the word of God door to door, they came to our home and shared the word of God with us and my mother gave her life to Jesus Christ. She started going to Church where the preachers came from.

My mother also told me to go and join the Sunday school in the same church. Mercy Ministries Uganda being a project under that church accepted me back to school. I am in primary 6 and I would like to continue with my studies.

My desire is to become a missionary when I finish my education. I always admire those children whose parents are able to pay their school fees in time, buy them food and clothes. I am seeking a sponsor who can make me forget about my late father.

Thanks and God bless you!

[05/30/13]   James 1:27
27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. (New King James Version)

[05/30/13]   The definition of Beauty
What is beautiful? How is beauty defined? God has made everything beautiful. And this is beauty as defined by God.
Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. – 1 Peter 3:3-4 (NLT)
You are more beautiful than you know. And you are so much more than beautiful.
God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27

Kalema Godfrey is 9 years old and he is in primary 5. His father and mother died of HIV/AIDS in 2008 and he is now staying with me . I met Kalema when he was staying with his Aunt and his life was very desperate. They lacked food, clothes, Bedding and proper shelter. Kalema joined our Orphanage in July 2010. Please, you can sponsor Kalema to have better life and future. — in Kampala.

Ayidah Kwehinza, Birthday: March 4, 2003

I was born in a Muslim family. My father had 3 wives and 13 children; 7 boys and 6 girls. I am the tenth child of my father and my mother is the second wife of my father. We used to go to the mosque with all our parents every Friday to worship Allah. In 2009 my mother fell sick and was admitted to Mulago Hospital for 4 months and eventually she died of high blood pressure and I remained in the hands of my two step mothers.

This is the very year when I was taken to school to start my education. Since my father was a just a mere local farmer, he was not able to pay our school requirements and I dropped out of school in the third year. The rest of my brothers and sisters could not continue with education due to lack of money. In 2011 my father also died of HIV/AIDS and this marked the beginning of my suffering and pain that could not stop.

Most of my brothers and sisters have also died because they were born with HIV/AIDS. When I saw the suffering we were going through, I decided to leave home to go and stay with my friend. While staying with my friend I was abused by my friend’s brother.

I thank God for Mercy Ministries Uganda that has accepted me and have shown me the love of God since I joined it in June 2012. Right now I am under the care of this ministry that takes care of orphans and vulnerable Children like me. I want to study and become a Doctor so that I would help the poor in the community. Thank you for your help to the Orphans and may the good Lord richly bless you.

Godfrey Magulu, Birthday: April 11, 2004

I was born in family that did not fear God. I am the first born to my father who had three children. My parents spent most of their time practicing witchcraft. My father was a well known witch doctor and I grew up in the shrine. I used to help my father look for local herbs for the sick. In 2008 I was taken to school to start my education. While at school spirits would come and attack me and possess me. This forced me to drop out of school.

In 2009 my father suddenly fell sick and started losing weight drastically and was taken to the main hospital for medical treatment. Doctors diagnosed him and the report was that he had acquired HIV/AIDS. He was then advised to start getting drugs for HIV/AIDS and he refused.

In 2010, my father died at home and this was the beginning of our suffering. When the father died we remained under the care of our mother who was a housewife and had no job. My mother started struggling for us; looking for food, clothes and paying rent for the house we were living in. My mother failed to pay rent and the landlord threw us out of the house. Our mother also dropped us in the street and left for the village to begin a new life. Life became so difficult that I advised my young brothers to look for a job for collecting rubbish for the people and taking them to the dustbin.

While collecting garbage, a man picked us up and took us to a nearby church and handed us over to the pastor. The pastor showed us love and started giving us food and shelter. My young brothers and I would like to go back to school and study so that in the future we can become better and responsible citizens in the community. I pray you will consider sponsoring us. God bless you.

Edrine Mayengo, Birthday, June 11, 2004

I was born to a Christian family but my parents were both drunkards. In 2008 my father fell sick and when he was taken to the hospital for a medical checkup, the doctor discovered he was HIV positive. In 2009 my father eventually died of AIDS in the hospital while admitted.

I remained with my loving and caring mother who was also sickly all the time. We were four Children, three boys and a girl and our mother could not take care of all of us since she was also suffering from AIDS and was always sickly.

I was in primary 1 when my father died and that was the end of my studies. My mother decided to distribute us to the relatives of our late father. I landed in the hands of my uncle who was also an alcoholic and life became so miserable. The uncle abused me all the time by overworking me, torturing me and denying me food. In 2011 my mother also died and I completely lost hope and wanted to take my life way because it was meaningless.

In the same year when my mother died Pastor James Ochwo shared the love of God with me and told me that there was still hope in the Lord Jesus. I joined Mercy Ministries Uganda in 2012 and I am now hopeful and happy. It is now my desire to continue with my education like any other fortunate child and become a responsible citizen and also help other helpless children who do not have food, clothes, shelter and medical care.

Please, sponsor me and may God bless you for your kind heart and unconditional love for the orphans and desperate children like me.

Andrew Tumutende, Birthday: January 5, 2000

He was born to a Christian family and is the second born to his parents. His father name was Bakwata and the name of the mother is Christine. His father died of brain cancer that lasted for 12 years in 2005 and left three Children. The last born was only 2 months old when their father passed away. Andrew was 6 years old by then and was in primary one.

Andrew’s family was very poor because their father was a local peasant. Their mother continued struggling with taking care of them and eventually failed to pay their school fees and Andrew dropped out of school while in primary 5. Life became very hard for Tumutende and he ended up in the streets.

His mother did not give up on him. She followed him even in the streets and brought him back home and finally took him to a nearby Church where the Pastor registered him and the other two children with Mercy Ministries Uganda.

It has been a blessing to him. We believe that through this ministry he will have a better future, having all the necessities in life. God bless you for being the hand to those who have no hands, for being the eyes to those who have no eyes and the legs to those who have no legs.

Sarah Awor, Birthday: 29th/ Nov. /1998

I was born in a Christian family and am the 4th born Child of my parents. My father and mother are both fulltime servants of God. We are 7 Children of the same father and mother. I am in primary 7 and would like to become a nurse when I grow up. My parents struggle with paying school fees for us. My mother sometimes works in a beauty Salon. The funds are very limited and in most cases we go back to school late and this makes us perform very poorly. I feel desperate when I see my parents struggling with looking for our school fees. I hope through Mercy Ministries Uganda you will be able to sponsor my education. Thank you and God bless you.

We believe that every child has seeds of greatness inside them.

But poverty deprives many of the opportunity to flourish. When you sponsor a child through Mercy Ministries Uganda, you help provide him or her with access to resources like nutritious food, clothing, clean water, healthcare, educational opportunities, and spiritual nurture — basics that boys and girls need to grow and thrive on well.

By investing in the life of a child, you could make an unimaginable impact. The child you sponsor could help lift his community out of poverty, save lives as a doctor, or become a prominent leader in her country. It’s happened for real children sponsored though Mercy Ministries Uganda. Partner with us and make a difference in the world.
