Mercy Works Appeal in Timor-Leste


Our Mercy Works Tax Appeal is to support our "Maucatar Nutritional/Hygiene Project"  in Cova Lima in Timor-Leste. 

Timor-Leste remains one of the poorest nations in the world. Maucatar is a remote mountainous area where there is severe malnutrition and high mortality rates. There is little or no access to water, sanitation, education or infrastructure.

Mercy Works partners with the Hospitaller Sisters of Mercy to deliver this project. It aims to improve the nutritional status of mothers and young children who attend the maternity clinic and outreach programs in the Maucatar catchment area. We provide holistic care to malnourished children and antenatal and postnatal mothers through clinical care, and nutrition through eggs and egg-laying hens. Follow up is also integral by the outreach Health Education and Nutrition program.

You can help save a child and mother from extreme hunger and poor nutrition. With your generosity Mercy Works can continue to support the women and children of Maucater in Timor-Leste by providing extra nutrition as we work together towards providing better health outcomes and health knowledge to the community. 

Mercy Works is hoping to raise $13,000 to support this project.
