emergency medical aid and delivering babies until February.

These pictures will tell a story for you of the destruction, the rebuilding, and the joy that now exists in that once broken land. But the rebuilding is not over. This midwife is not charging the patients, but has yet to receive any help from the government.
Immediate Opportunity to
Double your Donation:
Now a donor has offered to match 100% of all donations going to organizations doing recovery building in the disaster zone, and they chose Mercy In Action to receive those matching funds, but only if the donations are made through Global Giving, and only while the funds last. There is currently $35,000 in this fund, so if you were going to give to Mercy In Action this year, please give through Global Giving today, so that your money will be doubled, and we can do twice as much with your gift to help the survivors have a safe, clean, loving and prayerful place to give birth in that still recovering disaster zone.
