Our Mercy work was created in 1994 specifically to help and heal refugees , in particular young refugees, war orphans, or others whose family life has been totally disrupted by the wars in Africa. The security of a stable home brings healing and education diminishes fear of the future, replacing it with hope. Hence our motto: Love changes everything. Mercy House embodies this and our history has proved this to be true.
MEETING THE HOLY FATHER
This was the privilege of our former Mercy House leader, Eddie, who came to us in 2005. We were able to assist him to qualify as an engineer and he now works as an engineer for a large company in Pretoria. In October this year he joined a pilgrimage trip to Schoenstatt, Germany and Rome. He is seen in the photo below at the audience with our Holy Father, an experience which he will certainly never forget.
