Covenant Mercies was founded in February 2002 by Covenant Fellowship Church. This 501(c)(3) organization is dedicated to serving orphans in collaboration with indigenous local churches in the developing world.
Covenant Mercies’ first international partnership began with a church in rural eastern Uganda, leading to the establishment of the Orphan Sponsorship Program in 2003. From 2006 to 2008, they expanded their program areas to include rural western Uganda; Ndola, Zambia; and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Today, the organization serves over 1,100 fatherless children in name of Jesus Christ.
Covenant Mercies seeks to combat the multi-generational cycle of poverty in the lives of orphans, and restore them to everything God created them to be as bearers of His image (Genesis 1:27). Through a monthly or annual gift, sponsors provide their child with an education, clothing, nutritional support, hygienic supplies, healthcare, Christian teaching, and vocational training.
