What’s the mission of your community? ๐ŸŽฏ

Streams of MERCY was started as a community-based organization. We mobilize communities to offer holistic care to the children living with HIV/AIDS, orphans, and vulnerable groups (Refugees, widows, women, child mothers/Adolescents, and Elderly). Streams of Mercy exists to speak for and defend the rights of vulnerable children/people from all backgrounds regardless of creed, race, tribe, etc. Streams of Mercy helps the vulnerable overcome the obstacles of life that may cause them to give up on life. We address the economic, social, health, educational, and physical developments. We are inspired by a dream where all children living with HIV/vulnerable groups, regardless of their social background, can look forward to a bright future through given opportunities:

  • Opportunity to be loved.
  • Opportunity to be valued.
  • Opportunity to be touched by God.
  • Opportunity to bless others.
  • Opportunity to speak out.
VISION:

A society where vulnerable persons and children living with HIV/AIDS are empowered and are living a happy life.

MISSION:

To mobilize the communities to provide emotional and practical support to vulnerable people and children living with HIV/AIDS.
