I will miss the day-to-day life at our beautiful Mercy Centre.
After 22 years here, the last six years as Executive Director, I am taking everything I have learned from Fr. Joe, Sister Maria, our children, our patients and all my co-workers to explore new opportunities outside of Mercy Centre, especially those opportunities relating to HIV/AIDS home-based and community care.
It’s impossible to explain how much I will miss Mercy: the rhythm of life here is almost unbearably lovely – the daily celebrations of our children, the chorus of cheers and laughter coming from our kindergartens, the dignity of the elderly grandmoms and granddads who drop by as a part of our Mercy family. There is nothing I have ever seen or experienced like the joys of Mercy.
But while I am giving up my day-to-day duties at Mercy, I will continue to work on Mercy’s behalf and will help lead our teams as we conduct HIV Homecare workshops for community health organizations in Thailand, Laos, Bhutan and the areas bordering Burma. I will also continue to help coordinate with our sister charities - Mercy Centre UK and Mercy Centre Australia.
Please continue to support us and help in every way you can. Our Mercy Centre remains a beautiful celebration of life.
