Handwashing is the first form of defence against diseases like COVID-19.

But what if you don’t have clean water?

What are we doing?

Our team on the ground are all set and ready to repair bore holes so that remote communities in northern Uganda have the opportunity to protect themselves against this dreadful disease.

We just need your help.

The situation can become distressing quickly – the pandemic will place pressure on the already weakened health system.

By providing clean water you can help reduce the pressure and protect vulnerable communities.

The Mother Run
The Mother Run - VIRTUAL Event in May

The Mother Run is a VIRTUAL 10km in May event to get us moving during this time of isolation. 

Through entries and fundraising, it will raise much needed funds for the Maternity Ward at Kristina Health Centre in Northern Uganda. 15 women die per day in Uganda as a result of complications to do with birth. We are set on helping to reduce that number.

Who we are

Love Mercy works in northern Uganda to empower communities out of poverty sustainably.

Our three main projects increase access to education, health care and income generation.

Illustrate it yourself - Kids book!


School Holidays are upon us! How is time going so fast and slow at the same time?

We were thinking about our own kids at home, and how we have always wanted a version of Julius’ story to tell them. It is so encouraging and eye opening for kids.

So, after you put your email in, you receive a link direct to your inbox that is the kids version of Founder Julius Achon’s story. The purpose is to ‘Illustrate it yourself’ , so kids can illustrate in whatever way they like – painting, drawing, cutting and pasting… anything!

It also can just be read as a story in quiet time.

Don’t forget to share your creations with us on @Lovemercyfoundation for both Instagram and Facebook!

Who we are

Love Mercy began in 2010 in Sydney, Australia after Eloise Wellings, Australian Olympian, met Ugandan Olympian and former child soldier, Julius Achon. She promised to fulfill his dream of restoring hope to his village in Northern Uganda after decades of civil war. Love Mercy sees a future where Northern Uganda is transformed through simple solutions to poverty. Our two main projects, Cents for Seeds and the Kristina Health Centre, increase access to education, health care, and income generation and are funded entirely by generous donations from the public. We need your help.
