Love Mercy began in 2010, when Australian Olympian Eloise Wellings met Ugandan Olympian and former child soldier, Julius Achon.

After competing in the Olympics and building a life in America, Julius returned home to Uganda. His community were suffering in famine, and Julius & Eloise vowed to help.

Our projects increase access to food security, health care, clean water and income generation for thousands of families after decades of civil war.

Join us for The Mother Run in May to bring accessible maternal health care to women in remote northern Uganda.


Your 5km a day – moving however you like – will contribute to fundraising for vital equipment and services at Kristina Health Centre.

You will be helping to ensure women have access to safe birth and maternity care.

May 1 – May 31, 2023

Sign up now & we’ll be in touch with training and fundraising tips soon!
