Emergency Aid

Within the limits of available resources, House of Mercy Children’s Home, Lagos, Nigeria (HOM) engages and participates in emergency humanitarian assistance. We mainly contribute to projects for food, shelter, healthcare and education for children and women in emergency situations.

Videos of our humanitarian assistance work in Northeast Nigeria and in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo are available on YouTube and in our Video Gallery.

Our vision is of a prosperous and peaceful African continent where every child lives in safety and dignity and is enabled to reach his or her full potential.

“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.” ~ H.I.M Haile Selassie 1
