Who We Are:
Mercy Trips Healthcare Outreach is a nondenominational Christian organization dedicated to the encouragement of compassionate service through short term medically-oriented outreach missions.
What We Do:
Partnering with local healthcare workers and churches in medically underserved countries, we provide free medical clinics and surgical care as an outreach of Christian love for our fellow man.
Where We Go:
Our current projects are in Uganda, Africa; working with rural hospitals, clinics, churches and orphanages.
Who Can Go:
While the missions have a decidedly Christian focus, compassionate individuals from all backgrounds and experience levels are invited to join the teams.
Who We Treat:
Services are offered at local churches, schools or orphanages and medical care is provided by our team free of charge to all who come, without discrimination of race, religious affiliation, or social class . While evangelistic activities may be taking place at these sites, there is never any attempt to tie receipt of any services or medications to the need for religious conversion.
Our trips in Eastern Uganda are carried out in association with Kanginima Hospital a rural hospital serving the Pallisa District near Mbale. Surgeries are performed in the hospital’s 4 operating theatres, and the clinical staff helps with our village outreach to the local area. We have completed many protected spring clean water projects in the region working with the Lodoi Development Fund.
Our trips to Western Uganda are carried out with the assistance of the Tooro Kingdom and the local governing council. Outreaches extend to far western Uganda to villages near the Semiliki River that is the border with Congo. Surgeries are performed at a health unit in the village of Kabuta just through the Rwenzori Mountains.
We have been developing a program to match donors who desire to assist health profession students with education associated costs with appropriate candidates.
