In the hills of northern Nicaragua, a team of pastors and their families have begun a good work. Led by Pastor Carlos Baez, this amazing group is caring for families experiencing disability. The Nicaraguan team has a history with these families. Pastor Carlos knows the children by name. He has spent many hours building trust and relationship.
In the United States, we're hoping to bring education, relief, and therapies to the 265 kids in our program. Most importantly, we hope our actions declare, "You are valuable" to everyone we meet. We recognize families experiencing disability face magnified stress. These families need a safety net where they can receive life giving words of encouragement.
We are the The Mercy Kids.
The Two Parts of the Ministry:
The Mercy Kids ministers to families touched by disability in Nicaragua through:
- help for families experiencing disabilities (food, therapies, equipment, encouragement and other support)
- the selling of fair trade products - helps support the needs of The Mercy Kids ministry
