About Us

About UsMercy in Action is a UK registered charity that was founded in 1995.  Working amidst some of the poorest communities in the Philippines, we are committed to rescuing vulnerable children from the dangers of the streets by offering them food, nurture and an education.   Over time, our work has grown to encompass projects which are vital for whole community, such as house building, small business enterprises, and schooling and feeding programmes.

However, the heart of what we are trying to achieve has and always will be best expressed through our work with street children; the most vulnerable in that society.  We value the unique importance of every child, regardless of their background, faith, social or ethnic origin.  Our work centres around helping children to regain lost years, providing professional intervention focusing on education, play and health care.  We aim to help each child in our care to achieve their full potential and to give them the opportunity to live the rest of their lives free from the involuntary poverty into which they were born.
