Mercy Home Foundation Update
2010 Annaikarai. We have 96 women living at the Mercy Home Foundation main Annaikarai home and thriving. Conditions are clean and they are well cared for and well fed. Thanks to your support and the unending dedication of the Sisters of Sacred Heart of Jesus (SSHJ) Convent in Annaikarai. Lead by Sister Superior Yancy. They are the people who look after our project and look after the women. This building was completed in 2010.
2013 Angel Day School. Completed in 2013 this school serves local special needs children living in the area. They are bused in each day and return to their villages each afternoon. Currently 27 children attend. This project is maintained and managed by the JACID foundation, under the supervision of Hema Raja.
2015 Fr Francis Ravi Wingling Physical Therapy Building. Annaikarai. Following the passing of our dear friend Fr Francis, the man who first got us interested in India, we built a physical therapy building on the Annaikarai compound. Completed in 2016. This facility helps, as many of the special needs women on site have physical challenges. This is also administered by the SSHJ convent.
2016 This year we mainly increased security on the Annaikarai compound with night watchmen and a closed-circuit TV system. We assisted with teacher’s salaries and supplies at Angel Day School. The Government is now paying the salaries of the teaching staff.
2017 When I made my annual visit to the existing projects this past January I brought a special guest. My 85 year old father, made the 24 hour journey with me. Having been a longtime supporter, it was amazing to see him there, in the buildings. He was completely taken aback. Although having followed the progress through pictures and videos, he was overwhelmed with emotion at being in the buildings and interacting with the residents and staff. He was completely impressed with the size and condition of the buildings and the gardens surrounding them, that the residents themselves all maintain as part of their therapy. It gave me new passion to do more. That is why we are building the dormitory project.
New Project 7,000 square foot addition to the Annaikarai main building providing housing for over 30 children currently attending school on the premises. This new children’s dormitory will provide clean safe housing for the local children abandoned or orphaned. more...
