Successful Outreach

5th of October 2016

Mercy for Mamas was happy to be able to help host an outreach event yesterday in the Kakajjo slum in Kampala. Despite downpours just before, around 20 women were able to attend and learn about hygiene, nutrition, and how to use a mama kits. We worked with Youth for Christ on this particular project. What […]


Good News in a Broken World

2nd of September 2016

Friends, today I received a picture of some of the teenage girls at our partner, Wakisa Ministries, receiving their mama kits. It breaks my heart to see these girls who look so very, very young, pregnant with babies of their own. These girls should be playing with friends and studying at school, not preparing to […]


Strength for the Challenge

25th of August 2016

Wow. We received a wonderful and humbling report today from one of our ministry partners. We have worked with the Comforter’s Center in Kampala for nearly 6 years. This crisis pregnancy center does such important work in a large slum area. They counsel women who are considering abortions or who are in abusive relationships. They […]

Sweet Moments

14th of July 2016

We check blood pressure and heart rate, listen to their heart and lungs, measure and feel for position, and then we also use […]


Double Blessing

8th of July 2016

During the recent Mercy for Mamas trip we had the great privilege of getting to hold several brand new babies born using our mama kits. It is always such a thrill and blessing to me to get to see these sweet little ones– the fruit of our labors. These precious mamas have no idea how […]


Thank you!

23rd of May 2016

Thank you so much to all of the churches and individuals that have donated to Mercy for Mamas in the past month. It’s been so exciting to see God continue to provide for our work. Our mission team of 12 people leaves for Uganda in about two weeks. During that trip, we will pass out […]


Welcome!

9th of May 2016

Lots of people learned about Mercy for Mamas for the first time yesterday (Mother’s Day!).  If you fall into that category, “Welcome!” It is amazing to hear the reports from churches all over the country about how they shared about our work yesterday during the services. They raised awareness about the need and they also […]
