Children have the right to be children

About us

Child Mercy Sweden is an aid and relief organisation founded in 1980. Our values are based on a Christian view of humanity where all humans are of equal value, and on the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Our mission is to fight poverty and vulnerability. Our primary target group is children. All children have the right to be safe and to be children. Therefore we always put the child in focus. Our contributions take place on grassroot level, close to the children and their families. In this way, we create long-term change for individuals as well as the whole society. We work for children’s right to education, welfare and health.

Our goal is to collaborate with local domestic organisations or parishes that that commit themselves to the vulnerable in society. A local network of passionate people who lives close to those that are receiving aid. We want to work closely with our partners in their valuable contribution to their people. They are the owners of the projects and Child Mercy Sweden contributes with inspiration, financial aid, advising and partnership. We work primarily in Ethiopia, DR Congo, Brazil and Zambia.

We want to be involved and influence for a better world!
