Mercy Home – Jakarta

The Mercy Home is a neighborhood drop-in for over 500 children in a very rough area of Jakarta – right at the docks.    Yudith, David and Alex do a terrific job to provide a place for kids to go before and after school as their home life is not much.

They needed some basics so off we went to the store and got some sorely needed items:

Fans to keep a VERY hot school a little cooler

A few chairs for the teachers and administrators

Installing the fans up off the floor so the kids will leave them alone!

There’ll be a few more items, but this is a good start!
