Divine Mercy Family Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) Public Charity.
The primary function of the Divine Mercy Family Foundation is to develop a support home in Nigeria, West Africa that cares for homeless children and teenage girls who are pregnant or have small children.
We are also in the process of developing a team of "Contact Tracers" that will assist in bringing modern medical care to pregnant teens and women in rural villages in an effort to reduce maternal mortality.
Women and teens in Nigeria who become pregnant have a 1 in 23 chance of not surviving the pregnancy as compared to 1 in 2,100 for women and teens in the United States.
138 women die each day as a result of being pregnant
80% (110/day) or more of Maternal deaths in Nigeria are preventable with increased availability and accessibility to skilled medical care
$2,000 (300,000 Naira) will pay for all antenatal care and skilled medical delivery for one pregnant woman (including complications if any)
Architectural Plans are complete, a team of professionals has been assembled in Delta State and are awaiting instructions. All that is left is to obtain the necessary funding and we will begin saving lives.
