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.

Take the 5km a Day in May Mother Run Challenge!

Every day in Uganda, 15 women die due to complications related to pregnancy and childbirth.

Let’s do something about it, together.

Delivering your baby safely should not depend on where you live in the world. Every step you take this May will help change that.

Run. Walk. Cycle. Swim. You choose! 

Your 5km a day – or 10km a week – will go to funding safe births for women and their babies in northern Uganda.

Run for clean water at Sutherland to Surf this year!

Did you know that your run in S2S is the equivalent distance that many walk every day to collect water in northern Uganda?

By working together we can change this. Help us raise funds to drill 3 new wells and bring clean water to thousands of people.
