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.
JOIN OUR 5KM A DAY IN MAY 2022 CHALLENGE!
Every day in Uganda, 16 women die due to complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. Delivering your baby safely should not depend on where you live. Let’s do something about it, together.
Run. Walk. Cycle. Swim. Any movement. You choose!
Your 5km a day – or a week – will go to funding safe births for women and their babies in northern Uganda.
