Days Without Treatment Threatening a Little Life

Days Without Treatment Threatening a Little Life

Eight years ago, Lori, the co-founder of Show Mercy International (SMI) came down with malaria. By the time they realized it, she almost died. God miraculously saved her life. This inspired the Salley’s to share with others the importance of a medical facility.

That led to the Medical Clinic at Show Mercy’s base being born. We knew that many people face the reality of life and death far too often, and many times it is preventable. Now, seven years after opening the clinic, we are again reminded of the why behind it.

Sarah, a little girl, was brought to the medical outreach on day one.

She had life threatening bacterial infection. She had gone days without treatment because her single mom is responsible for an entire family, and did not have enough money to take her to the hospital.

When Sarah’s mama heard about the Show Mercy medical outreach, she knew this was her chance to have her little girl treated! This mama carried her dying daughter to the outreach.

Sarah was treated that day, and came back the next day with no fever! After two days, she was smiling! She is receiving further treatment at the Show Mercy Clinic.
Thank you to all who made this outreach possible! You saved Sarah’s life, as well as many others.

As we look forward, we are expectant for the Birthing Clinic to open. Many little lives will be born and many mamas encouraged and empowered.

Show Mercy is working to build an amazing team in Uganda that will help bring much-needed transformation to the country. We have hired many team members from Uganda over the past years to ensure that the ministry is consistent even when teams from the west are not visiting Uganda.

We also have a team that works at our base in America and travels over to help facilitate in Uganda periodically. We call our team the ‘dream team’ because they are made up of people who believe for the impossible!

Show Mercy is constantly looking for opportunities to reach out in love to our neighbors in Uganda. We partner with local villages to bring hope and help to those in need. We currently work with local schools, prisons, hospitals, churches, and much more! Learn how you can help here.
