Keep Our Missionary Birth Center Open

Campaign Created by: Nolan Silvey

Goal: USD $50,000
Raised: USD $ 56,453
Mercy Maternity Center is facing closure within 30 days unless temporary emergency operating funds are raised.  This Christian charity birth center has been serving the poor in the Philippines for the past 24-years offering competent and compassionate maternal healthcare while training missionary midwives.

The clinic is predominately funded by the Philippine Government’s socialized health insurance plan which reimburses the clinic approximately US$120-$190 per delivery. However, due to the economic ramifications brought about by the COVID pandemic, the government has not been able to maintain payouts to clinics in a timely manner.  Consequently, the clinic has implemented emergency cost-saving measures, but after working four months off of capital reserves, these resources will be depleted within one month.  We are seeking funds to help sustain the clinic until the government reimbursements resume.

Mercy has delivered 28,000 babies in its history and the current COVID crisis has caused a 100% increase in the number of patients being served because women are afraid to deliver their babies in hospitals.  More than 300 babies were born at the clinic in the past 60 days, and at least that many are due to deliver within the next 60 days.

The clinic’s operating budget is $20,000/month, which funds payroll for Filipino employees, patient transportation, medical supplies, ministry outreaches, Gospel materials, food, etc.

In order to help jump-start this campaign, a donor has graciously offered to match donations up to $2500, which would bring that amount to $5000 - 10% of our goal.  Please consider helping this ministry continue to serve women by contributing to and sharing this urgent need. 

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who has given, shared and prayed to help us keep our missionary birth center open. We have gotten off to a great start and have raised over $28,000 in 5 days! Praise God - truly amazing!  Please continue to pray with us that funds would come in so we can continue to serve the patients at Mercy and continue God's work here in the Philippines to those who desperately need maternal care.  We are hoping that another big push might allow us to reach our goal.  Please share our story with your friends and on social media if you are able. We appreciate you all! God is good.
