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 three main projects increase access to education, health care and income generation for thousands of families after decades of civil war.
What we have achieved so far
Love Mercy Foundation is committed to sending 70% of funds to our projects in northern Uganda. We hold DGR status and as such donations over $2 may be tax deductible.
We are committed to the highest level of transparency. All of our annual reports are available online at our Reports and Policies Page. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
