Working With Women
        In keeping with the spirit of Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, Mercy Focus on Haiti works for the empowerment of women.  We are partnering with already established groups of women in the Gros Morne region, Fanm Ibo, and MPGN in providing markets for their hand made products and working together to create an ecological catering service.
        Soon Mercy Focus on Haiti will be sponsoring a new initiative for the ultra poor, those who live on less than $1.25 per day.
