BENEFITING: The Mercy Maternity House, Inc.
Mercy House Kenya is a maternity home in Kenya whose purpose is rescuing the most vulnerable pregnant girls in the country – young girls who have become pregnant through horrific circumstances. Many of the girls are orphans or homeless and have been abused, raped, or forced into prostitution to support their families. Mercy House Kenya, now operating two maternity homes, brings the girls in and provides a safe, healthy environment where the girls are provided with medical and prenatal care, education, job skills, and discipleship. The goal is to reintegrate the girls safely into their community after they have graduated from Mercy House. Mercy House also provides community outreach to help other young, single mothers through job skills training, education, and discipleship. On April 16, 2016, I will be running to raise money to support Mercy House. Please consider donating to support this amazing ministry!
