About Mercy May
MERCY MAY IS A GREAT WAY FOR YOU TO BE INVOLVED IN MAKING A DIRECT IMPACT IN TRANSFORMING LIVES IN AFRICA.
With your help, we can restore sight for children like Tresor, as well as provide specialised training for doctors like Dr Wodome. He passionately set up his own clinic as well trained other ophthalmologists to perform specialised eye surgeries.
All of our 2021 programs are aimed at supporting and strengthening the health systems from grassroots to Government in the most impactful way.
Helping is easier than you think! Get together with your friends, colleagues or family, put together a fun catch up or event and raise money for a great cause in the process. Your involvement with Mercy May, no matter how big or small, will make a vital difference to those living in desperate need.
If you cannot get a group together, make a donation and know that your funds are going directly to helping someone in need.
Join us to help save lives in Africa this Mercy May.
100% of all funds raised go directly to training our healthcare workers to deliver surgical needs, reduce disability, prevent early death and restore hope throughout Africa.
Helping is easy. You can host an morning or afternoon tea, a BBQ, a clothes swap, organise a movie night or even run a marathon. Just help by spreading the word to your friends. The opportunities are endless.
How to Host a Mercy May Event

Step 3. Invite your friends
We’ll post you invitations as part of your host kit, along with decorations, your host booklet full of tips and ideas, along with the necessary paperwork. If you also choose an online host page, you can share it with your friends through Facebook, Twitter or in an email.
