Mercy Indonesia Foundation’s mission is to restore the lives of orphans and vulnerable children throughout Indonesia and to raise them as Disciples of Christ and as future leaders of their generation.  
OUR HISTORY   Mercy Indonesia Foundation was started on May 10th, 2001 when an unwed mother gave away her three-day-old baby boy to Paulus and Marliesye Wiratno. Two weeks later another woman contacted them, hoping they would take care of her baby too. The story went on and more unwanted and abandoned babies were given to the young couple. Realizing the need to rescue babies and orphans, and feeling the call of God, Paulus and Marliesye started a foundation called Mercy Indonesia. Ever since, Mercy Indonesia has expanded by building and overseeing Kinships throughout the Indonesian islands.  Working closely with the international organization, Kinship United, we established a network of Kinships and other ministry centers in West Timor, West Sumba, Central Java, and Aceh.   
OUR COMMITMENTS   Building awareness of the despair faced by vulnerable children in Indonesia. Providing resources, for the children under our care that meet their spiritual, physical, social and emotional needs. Sharing the message of the transforming power of Christ's love through our words and action. Partnering with other organizations to maximize efficiency through specialization. Fostering development efforts that bring about self- sufficiency of individual children homes and the children growing up in them. Maximizing the giving power of donors and sponsors through partnerships, matching grants and auditing programs.  
OUR SUCCESS   Since the first of our Kinships was formed over a decade ago, we watch with gratitude as many of our children now reaching their adulthoods are eager to stay close to the Ministry and give back utilizing their talents, skills, and leadership training working for us. Some become great caregivers in our homes by personally relating to many issues, while others utilize their talents by becoming core team members for our Ministry’s further outreach on Bali.
