Celebrating 15 Years of Ministry

Education Healthcare Sustainability

15 years ago, our story began with a heart to serve fatherless children in the developing world. We prayed for God’s help to do justice and love mercy for the sake of these precious children. He answered in ways beyond what we could imagine.

Today, over 2,230 children have experienced the care of the Orphan Sponsorship Program. We thank God for the generosity, prayers, and labors of Covenant Mercies partners around the globe. You helped make a dream from 2002 possible. Because of your passion for this cause, orphans and widows in Uganda, Zambia, and Ethiopia have broken out of multi-generational poverty.

In honor of our Anniversary, we’ve launched a special new campaign: 15 for 15. Your tax-deductible gift of $15 or more will help us continue expanding our programs and investing in education and healthcare opportunities for the children of Covenant Mercies. We are also excited to share that a generous donor has committed to match eligible 15 for 15 donations! Any gift between $150 and $1,500 will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $15,000. Between now and June 1, you can double the value of your donation.
