MERCY CHILDREN'S HOME, KENYA
The stories of many children in the home and school reveal great needs. Children are there through loss of one or both parents, some because their father is in prison. Others have been rescued from unsafe and at times dangerous situations. Many are simply suffering from malnutrition. These children are often brought to the orphanage by the Welfare Department of Kenya.

MERCY PRIMARY SCHOOL
The school built in ‘corrugated iron’ has had more classrooms added over the years.

Land has been purchased for a new school building, Work has now begun with some initial funds provided, to commence construction of four of the eleven classrooms needed. We are seeking further funds to bring the new school to completion.
