My heart for this home is to take in any child in need and provide them with spiritual nourishment, food, shelter, and education. Ninety-nine of the students at Great Mercy Education Centre also live at the Great Mercy home. These children range from 3-19 years old. There are forty boys and ﬁfty-nine girls. The children of Great Mercy are street kids, orphans, or at risk-youth. Some of the children have a very sick parent who is unable to provide for them.
Elizabeth is the social worker at Great Mercy and she is also a Great Mercy success story, having grown up in the home herself. It is her responsibility to seek out the children, assess their needs, and offer counselling and encouragement.
