MARY, ARK OF THE NEW COVENANT - CENTRE OF MERCY MEDICAL CLINIC in Uganda

The Naming of the various rooms at the Medical Clinic

The construction of this Medical Clinic is God’s work and we are God’s instruments. Behind us are a large force of Saints and Patrons interceding for God’s will to be done. 

After prayer and meditation, the following inspiration was received: the various rooms are to be named after a various group of Saints/Patrons. This will give donors the opportunity to donate toward the completion of the rooms for the Saints/Patrons they have a special devotion to, and the Saints/Patrons will continue to further the mission of Hope through their intercessions. 

You are invited, and encouraged, to prayerfully join us in supporting our new program. 

Thank you and God bless you.

Jesus, I trust in You. 

Fr. Bomukama Denis

UPDATE ONCENTER OF MERCY HEALTH CLINIC in Uganda.

 

Hello dear friends people of God.

 

Thank you for your help that you have given to the poorest villages of western Uganda, under Wind of Hope Initiative.

 

Among the many life changing projects you have supported is now the Center of Mercy Health Clinic whose construction is in it's early stages and with faith and hope, it will be realized.

 

The work which started with grading of a bushy ground, digging of the foundation and proceeded with the buying of some of the construction materials has been put on a halt by the heavy rains in the area.

 

The roads are muddy and transportation of materials to start the construction is still a challenge as seen in the videos below.

 

We pray that the weather stabilizes and the work resumes.

 

Thank you dear friends for your kindness in the construction of this project of Mercy and Hope that will save many lives of pregnant women and their children in Uganda.

 

Jesus I Trust in You.

THE HILLS OF MERCY: In Comparison with Pio’s Casa and the “Centre of Mercy” Clinic in Uganda.

Every day after Mass, I do either 30 minutes or one hour of Adoration. As I was in Adoration in deep prayer, this is what I received: ‘The Lord was telling me about the small seed that grows to be the largest tree where birds of the air come and find shelter.’ This was in relation to Padre Pio’s thought that ‘A seed has been placed in the soil, which He will warm up with the rays of His love.’ This was during the inauguration of the Casa in 1956. 

My interpretation of what I received in adoration was that the “Centre of Mercy,” with its humble beginnings, will grow and be a sigh of relief for so many — the reason I compare the two centres of God’s Mercy. 

In 2016, while doing community needs assessment and social work in Busiriba, Kanimi, one of the remote villages in western Uganda, I witnessed how many children, women and men were living below the poverty line and were facing life-threatening challenges, such as hunger, the lack of basic needs of life, most especially, food, shelter, clothing, lack of education and health care. 

I started conducting some charity work within the area, and was later joined by other passionate friends who have extended support due to the increase of day-to-day community needs that required an extra hand. 

From my daily updates on Facebook for all my friends, who are not in Uganda to know and journey with me as far as work on the ground is concerned, I can say that, “The Lord is Merciful.” 

From the Bushy hills in the remote villages has come a ray of Hope and Mercy, with the Lord Blessing his people with a school called “Mary Queen of Peace.” 

In the early years of Padre Pio’s mission, he found himself surrounded by sick people and he never closed his eyes to physical illness. He considered the doctors as a necessity… He didn’t seek refuge in agnosticism that is ignoring the body to only confide uniquely in prayer, and he insisted that they be cared for. Padre Pio stated: “...In every sick person there is Jesus who suffers. In every poor person Jesus languishes. In every poor sick person there is Jesus who suffers and languishes twice over...”

I was inspired to extend God’s Love to these people, not only in prayer, but also caring about their physical health.  The words of Padre Pio give us more reasons to have this facility of MARY, ARK OF THE NEW COVENANT- CENTER OF MERCY CLINIC constructed in the bushy hills of the remote villages of Uganda. What a resemblance of the 2 hills! I take it as an affirmation of God’s Will in Uganda through the Holy Spirit’s kindness. 

This clinic is greatly needed and it will be lifesaving. 

As we begin this season of Lent, think about supporting this cause that will save many lives. 

Your donation, in any amount, will help make an impact for LIFE. 

GOD BLESS YOU.

We are REJOICING and pleased to ANNOUNCE that, on the 3rd Sunday of Advent and the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn, we received the final drawings for the new, MARY, ARK OF THE NEW COVENANT - CENTRE OF MERCY medical clinic for the mothers and babies in western Uganda.

TOGETHER, we can participate in Jesus’ saving work in 30 remote poor villages where our community-based organization, ‘Wind of Hope Initiative’ operates. In these villages, the rate of dying mothers during childbirth is alarming. This is because they are poor and cannot afford a better hospital facility which is also many miles away.

This clinic will be a Centre of Mercy indeed.

It will be one of its kind in the area in advocating for Prolife.

It will be saving so many financially poor pregnant mothers from possible death while giving birth, and, of course, saving the lives of children and treating other rampant related diseases in the area, like Malaria.

Your donation, in any amount, will be allocated toward the total cost of $37,100 for MARY, ARK OF THE NEW COVENANT - CENTRE OF MERCY medical clinic.

Our hope is that, by your love and support, and, with God’s Grace, the Clinic, as part of saving lives and extending the Divine Mercy, can be made a reality.

Thank you and God bless you abundantly this holy Advent Season.
