May 16, 2018 – Yesterday, was the deadliest day in Gaza since 2014. According to the Ministry of Health, 58 Palestinians were killed, including six children and one health worker, and 2,771 injured after the use of live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas targeting demonstrators. Many health facilities in Gaza are facing a serious shortage of drugs and medical supplies as well as an overwhelming influx of injured patients. Cumulatively, these dynamics have already harmed Gaza’s health system and continue to threaten the well-being of its patients. Health services in Gaza are already extremely limited due to chronic shortages of medicines, medical disposables, and inadequate supplies of electricity and fuel for emergency generators in hospitals. In response to increasing health needs, Mercy Without Limits has quickly responded to help local teams treat the injured through the provision of essential medical supplies. In partnership with World Health Organization, Mercy Without Limits sent a medical container equipped with medical supplies and medicine to meet emergency medical needs.
With the holiday season upon us, many cities around the U.S. are booming with jingle bells and sounds of “let it snow, let it snow, let it snow”. The air is crisp with winter freeze or if you are on the west coast, an imagined winter breeze. This time of the year typically brings joy, family, friends, gifts, and good food for many residents of the United States. For many on the other side of the world, wintertime elicits dread and fear.
Specifically, for those people living in poverty or conflict zones, winter brings cold that kills. Every year Mercy Without Limits works quickly in communities we serve to ensure the cold does not kill any children, elderly, or families who simply don’t have the resources to stay warm. For every $30 you spend buying a gift for a family or friend, spend $30 to ensure one family has enough jackets for their kids.
With your generosity and support, last year we shared 750 blankets and 308 jackets to vulnerable families in Jordan. Likewise, inside Syria, Turkey, and Iraq Mercy Without Limits made sure people in communities we serve stayed warm winter 2017.
No parent should have to kiss the cold cheek of their child goodnight one last time because the cold took their son. You can stop the cold from killing their little ones.
With the sound of school bells ringing and pounding feet on fresh pavement, children and youth all around the United States are ready to begin the new school year. With backpacks full of school supplies, new clothes to wear, and family & friends supporting their journey, students are ready to reach their full academic potential.
Thousands of miles away, in small villages around Syria, Ghana, Jordan, and Sierra Leone children eagerly wish and ask their caregivers if they can attend the local make-shift schools. For little girls like Mariam, going to school is an expensive dream. Going to school with a backpack, school supplies, and new clothes to wear, is a dream almost impossible to reach.
While her caregivers would love to send her to the local school and send her with supplies to help her learn, but life is difficult for poor refugee families who struggle to make ends meet. With our orphan sponsorship program, Mercy Without Limits sponsors eagerly support young dreamers by helping fund the costs of their education and the supplies they need to have a great school year.
Join Mercy Without Limits as we empower eager children and youth to reach their dream of going to school, having backpacks filled with school supplies, new clothes to wear, and academic potential to reach.
Mercy Without Limits is excited to announce news of our new orphanage in Sierra Leone! We are beyond thrilled to start this new journey and sincerely thank our loyal supporters, donors, staff, volunteers, and orphans for believing in us. With your support we were able to purchase land for the orphanage, buy building supplies, and hire builders. The new orphanage is in the development phase, meaning builders are busy at work building the orphanage brick by brick.
The orphanage will be home for 98 orphans – 46 girls and 46 boys. The home will consist of two form rooms, two washing facilities, and one big dining room & kitchen for kids to eat their daily, home-cooked communal meals. In addition to the home, we will be building a primary school, secondary school, health clinic, women’s vocational center, and two water wells.
Our vision is this home becomes a source of hope not just for the orphans but for the community at large. We empower a community to grow by educating their little ones, vaccinating and treating their sick ones, securing jobs for their women, and providing safe water for all in the community – that is sustainable change.
We will keep you updated as progress continues. We would like to give a big THANK YOU to Mr. Ibrahim and his family for their efforts in making a difference in the lives of others.
