The Village of Hope is a multi-stage project focused on providing medical care and community services to the people of Osi-Ekiti and the surrounding communities. The village of Hope's construction began in 2016. The village will include a health clinic, lab and diagnostic center, pharmacy, community center, and will house the mobile vans.
A project like the Village of Hope presents many unique and challenging obstacles. Electricity and water are not easily accessible. Mercy must also build its own wells and power sources in order for the village to function. This project is 100% donor funded. Make a difference by donation to Mercy to help building hope for the people of Osi-Ekiti, Nigeria.
We maintain a small pharmacy and medical supplies store where patients can purchase medication and non-durable disposable health care materials ordered or prescribed by a physician. We have established a simple, efficient and cost-effective system to enhance our patient's well-being.
Mercy International Mission, USA and Mercy International Mission, Nigeria exist to reduce disease and mortality rates in southwestern Nigeria through the provision of essential medical care, preventative health services, and health education; to strengthen local communities by facilitating self-development activities and to improve overall quality of life for men, women, and children in the region. To accomplish this mission, we realize that we have to establish and maintain a permanent self-sustaining health clinic that can service the entire Ekiti and the neighboring states. We intent to build a solid, efficient, and cost-effective diagnostic medical center that can meet the need of the people in this area.
