A Missing Leg Doesn’t Get Justine Down

Justin with her newest prosthetic leg.
Because of our AMAZING SPONSORS and SUPPORTERS,
Justine has received another new prosthetic leg!

Here is the brief update from the field:

Justine outgrew her last leg, which she received in 2016. Not only that, but the rugged conditions in the village also wore the leg out! Show Mercy helped her travel to Katelema Hospital for her fitting and sizing to be done. She had to return again at a latter time for a 5 day stay, where she was trained on how to use the leg.

We only had the funds to cover the cost of a leg estimated to last for 2 years. (they use different material for each leg and the cost is different for each one) However, the hospital stepped in and gave her the nicest quality leg for the same price – and it should last her many more years. She was very excited! This leg will allow her to continue to get around easily, to walk around her school, etc.

This is the power of sponsorship!
Thank you for loving Show Mercy and
for loving the people we serve in Uganda!

Birthing Center Update

 

A big thank you to every person who gave generously towards our matching grant last year. We raised over $100,000, which will help us to begin this project!  Thank you again for the support. You will be saving lives!

Here is where we are today:

  • Birthing Center Plans are almost finalized. We are working with an architect to design a beautiful and functional clinic.
  • We have met with the District Offices in Uganda to make sure we meet all requirements. They have given us some valuable suggestions. 
  • Land titles are being processed to give us the ability to get a government issued permit for the construction.
  • We have begun the construction of our training center that will be used for both the Birthing Center and our Farm Outreach.
  • We are researching costs for ultrasound machines and ambulance.
  • Team is preparing budgets for 24/7 staff.

Thanks again for your support for the people of Uganda. Thank you for playing a crucial role. All of this is possible because of your support and prayers.

Celebrate Easter With Us!

We are preparing for Show Mercy International’s Ugandan Easter Celebration. During these festivities, the SMI team will celebrate with the children at the four different Say No to Hunger locations with very special food, games, and worship. The children will hear the amazing story of Easter and how Jesus died, was buried and rose again. It’s going to be an exciting time!

We are also preparing special care packages for the elderly in our HERO program.

We invite you to join us for this special celebration! 

Thank you in advance for loving the children in Uganda.

Your gift will help provide an amazing celebration of over 350 children.

Reaching out in LOVE with Medical Care!

 

In the month of February, our team served 833 people in the villages of Bakka and Kaliti by providing free medical care!

We screened for various illnesses such as HIV, diabetes, hepatitis B, malaria, and H. pylori; and performed urinalyses for bladder infections and syphilis. Throughout each day, we saw and treated hopeless individuals in need of simple care.

The majority of the children we treated suffer disabilities due to untreated or undiagnosed diseases which have greatly interfered with their lives. Elderly women and men with diseases such as diabetes or hypertension received treatment and medication that government facilities failed to provide. We saw pregnant women who suffered with severe malaria and were at high risk of losing their unborn babies. So many people were helped on this outreach.

Every case was heartbreaking in its own way and
we were humbled and honored to truly IMPACT lives!

Thank you for making this outreach possible.

“The medical outreach is not an ordinary activity, it is an event that presents an opportunity for people to receive treatment, hope and restoration.”

A huge part of our medical missions is to share the love of Jesus, pray for patients and share the gospel!

This year, our friends from YWAM Kona (Youth With A Mission) helped serve at the medical outreaches. YWAM serves at our base for two months twice a year. We love them and their partnership.

The team prayed, preached the gospel, and led a time of worship as the patients waited to be seen. The entire SMI team did a wonderful job encouraging each individual and reaching out in love!

Show Mercy International provides short-term volunteer opportunities for medical and dental professionals, students, and non-medical volunteers with any level of experience.

When you join us on our medical outreaches, you will support our medical staff and team by providing medical care, well-patient checkups, dental care, and community health education classes reaching 100-500 patients depending on the team size.

Our medical outreaches are great opportunities to share the love of Jesus with others. The community is always so thankful for this outreach.
We would be honored to have you join us this July.
