“Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” – Psalm 82:2-4
We believe that every child is a unique and precious gift from God. Our ministry is committed to meeting the needs of children one by one as we care for, protect, and nurture the destitute & abandoned in India. Our focus is to create worth and wholeness through a loving environment that radiates God’s love. Our goal is to equip children to reach their God-given potential by nourishing not only their physical, mental, and emotional needs, but also offering a place of hope for their future.
Mercy International opened it's first Care Center in the state of Tamil Nadu, India in March 2020, and as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic has created a Relief Outreach, feeding hundreds of families in remote villages. Due to the great need, we have felt the Lord leading us to provide a much needed children's home in this area as well.
Our amazing ministry partners includes our faithful board members; Rick and Cheryl Nikkel, Ami Armstrong, John Leininger, Paul Daniel, and Dia De Haan, along with consultant, David Granner.
Our Arise Child Care Center is managed by Mr. Selvakumar and his wife, Anbumani. And our Loving Children's Home for boys is managed by Mr. Paramadass and his wife, Amala, as well as many loving individuals in India who have a heart of love and compassion and a concern for the oppressed.
We are committed to sharing the love and grace Jesus Christ has for those he cherishes. Through the amazing support from individuals, churches, and family, we have the ability to provide for those who are in the greatest need.
