We don't normally ask for donations for our overhead costs. We try to keep those costs as low as possible. We try to make sure every amount donated goes directly to the work in Uganda. However, in order to do the work, we sometimes have to spend money on the not-so-fun stuff. We have several large expenditures coming up (website, legal fees, and brochures). If you believe in the work we are doing, would you be willing to give towards these items? Just donate from the website and make a note that it is for "overhead". Thank you so much! We are blessed to have so many wonderful people who believe in the work that we do.

Good news! Research is showing that efforts to reduce the maternal mortality rate in Uganda are working. Providing prenatal education, giving women access to mama kits, and well-trained health care workers are making a difference. Mercy for Mamas is so excited to be a small part in this success. Our work is far from done, but we are so glad to know what we are doing is working. Be a part of the solution and join us in this work.

Mercy for Mamas was thrilled to host an outreach over the weekend with our friends at the Nakalanda Project. This is video of our dear nurse Agnes having the ladies move around to keep their attention going during the teaching time. We hope it makes you smile. So glad we were able to provide them excellent teaching and much-needed birthing supplies.
Here are a few pictures from the event:

You all loved our latest Mercy for Mamas shirts from Bonfire so much, we decided to launch another campaign for one week!
Our top seller was our baseball tee. This comes with either red or blue sleeves. It is SO soft! I could live in mine!
All of the shirts have the logo and website on the back!
We hope this sends people to our website and opens up some conversations for you!
Our hoodies are also really popular. These are soft and roomy to keep you warm!
These come in Scarlet and Charcoal!
We also have unisex shirts in adult and youth sizes! You can't go wrong with these.
Jessica and her son Landon are great models!
These come in charcoal, ice blue, and cardinal red for adults and just cardinal red for kids!
We also have tanks (blue, gray, and red) and ladies fit shirts (light blue, gray or scarlet).
All proceeds from the shirts go directly to our ministry in Uganda.
Each purchase provides at least one mama kit to a woman in need!
Click here to order! Note that when you click the link, to see all shirt options you have to go to the drop down menu where it will currently say "Women's Slim-Fit Tee- $22" and you will see all of the choices.
The campaign lasts until February 20th. Shirts should arrive within two weeks after the sale completes.

Your smile for the day! Check out this beautiful mama receiving her mama kit.
This woman is a part of a program that reaches out to young mothers in a slum area of Kampala. They meet each week for bible teaching, health seminars, parenting classes, prayer and worship. In 2016, we got the joy of passing out more than 6,400 mama kits to women just like her. Every $7 donation helps to make moments like this happen!
