"Many of our patients have never been looked in the eye before. We see past their condition and we are changed by them"
Africa Mercy Nurse
Mercy makes a difference
We are driven by the wish to help those people who have suffered so much for so long. Many of our patients have been abandoned by their families, neglected or ostracised by their communities because the treatable conditions they suffer from are considered a curse. In places with little or no health care, conditions that would be quickly and easily dealt with elsewhere in the world become severe and life-threatening. Mercy makes a difference and here you can find some of our patients' stories - which, more than anything else we can include on this site - explain why we must do this work and why your support is critical.
