About Us

Mission Statement:

To provide emergency relief and long term rebuilding support to devastated areas.

As natural disasters strike across the earth, our hearts are gripped with compassion for the pain and suffering of our brothers and sisters.  Lives are altered in a matter of moments; it is up to us to make a difference.  We might feel, “What can I do? I’m no one important, can I really change this?” The answer is yes!  When we all join hands and realize that every drop of rain can become a mighty river that brings refreshing and meets needs, we can and will make a difference.  Please join us and be confident that your raindrop can become a river, that you too can change the world!

Where Your Donations Go

Mountain Mercy project is currently partnering with three reliable missionary groups to put into action our mission statement.  Two are in Haiti and one is in Africa.  100% of your donations will go to one or more of these three groups.  In Haiti, we support a maternity hospital and a church/school; in Africa we support a young nurse working for Iris Ministries.  See our Partners page for more details.  As needs arise around the world, we will expand our river of influence.

How You Can Help

Please consider making a regular monthly donation to Mountain Mercy Project.  Even a donation as small as $5/month can make a world of difference in an impoverished nation.   If you can donate more, the river becomes even greater.

If you can make a one-time donation, every drop adds up to the flow of the river of mercy!

Sometimes we have special events to raise money.  If you would like to know about these as they come up, or help us with them, watch our Facebook page (if you “like” us on Facebook, you will receive email notifications), or you can email us atgdemattei@MountainMercyProject.org and we will be sure to notify you.  If you have any ideas for a fundraiser, please contact us by email or call (209) 586-0700.

Haiti Project Letter
Mountain Mercy Project: Haiti

His mercy endures forever…will ours?

As natural disasters strike across the earth, our hearts are gripped with compassion for the pain and suffering of our brothers and sisters.  Lives are altered in a matter of moments; it is up to us to make a difference.  We might feel, “What can I do? I’m no one important, can I really change this?” The answer is yes!  When we all join hands and realize that every drop of rain can become a mighty river that brings refreshing and meets needs, we can and will make a difference.

This organization is being birthed from hearts of people who actually have been in Port-au-Prince and saw their plight before the earthquake.  The pictures in the media can only begin to show the loss.

Getting off the plane in Haiti, one can just smell the hopelessness and despair, along with the stench of burning refuse and human waste, no sewer systems.  Your eyes cannot believe so many people could live in such a small space and such squalid conditions.  “Tap-taps”, small pick-up trucks, filled with 15 to 20 people, race up and down the streets; women and children beg at your car window for any donation of food or money just for survival – abject poverty and corruption, everywhere.  This was all before the quake; one can only imagine what it is like now.

We have an overwhelming burden to make a difference, to see Haiti rise from her ashes and become a strong nation.  They have suffered loss many times, but this exceeds them all.  Having been there and experienced this despair, before the quake, we cannot turn our backs on this call and opportunity to make a difference….

Our river of mercy may only be a small trickle right now, but with your help it can become a powerful river that will bring refreshing to a parched nation.  Please join us and be confident that your raindrop can become a river, that you too can change the world!

We are partnering with at least two reliable missionary groups that have been in Haiti for over 25 years.  These people have been in the trenches making a difference and they need our help more than ever before.  Their question is, “When FOX News and CNN go away, will we?”

Fishers of Men Ministries is an organization that founded and oversees over 25 regional schools and churches in the island, as well as a church in downtown Port-au-Prince, with over 7500 in attendance on Sundays.  Their schools and churches feed over 1500 children a day.  Their home campus is located in downtown Port-au-Prince and suffered great loss, physically and personally.  Over 30 people were crushed under the collapsed roof of their church building while conducting a Bible class, along with many of their 7500 members’ families losing loved ones.

RHEMA International has a small medical clinic and maternity hospital in Bocozelle, a rural region in the Artibonite River Valley, located approximately 70 miles north of Port-au-Prince.  They faithfully have delivered over a thousand babies in the last few years and are blessed to say they have not lost one baby or mother.  They tend to the medical needs of this growing community on a daily basis, seeing over 150 patients a day.

Their facility is functional, having not suffered any significant damage from the quake.  They are now beginning to see many people fleeing the city and coming to them for medical aid as all the hospitals in Port-au-Prince were destroyed.

We are certain there are other such faithful organizations that will need support also.  As the dust settles in this heart-torn nation, we will be there with as much aid as we can supply – financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually.  We will do the best we can to be like Him and not fail these devastated people.  We will indeed gather all our “raindrops” and create a “river of mercy from the mountain.”
