Mercy Works Website  

Mercy Works supports the local and overseas relief and development activities that are part of the vision and mission of the Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea.

In Australia, Mercy Works offers community education in world development concerns, provides assistance with refugees, and works in partnership with Indigenous peoples. 

Overseas, the primary focus is in the Asia-Pacific region, where, in collaboration with local partners, Mercy Works directs its efforts towards the education, health care, and social and spiritual well-being of those who are poor or displaced.
