####Love Mercy exists to empower communities in Northern Uganda to overcome poverty caused by the horrors of war.
It all began in 2010 in Sydney, Australia after Eloise Wellings, Australian Olympian, met Ugandan Olympian and former child soldier, Julius Achon and heard his story. The result was the creation of our three main projects below.
For a small $30 donation, a woman is provided with a 30kg loan of seeds, a gardening tool, educational workshops and access to savings groups. The seeds are planted for food and income, then seeds from her harvest are returned to reloan to another woman. Beginning in 2010 with just 100 women, Cents for Seeds has reached 18,000 in 2021.
