After having an epiphany about mercy, the House of Mercy was established and constituted  on July 1st, 2020. The cause of extending acts of mercy was inspired by the scripture "2 Samuel 9vs 1."

Families were given food hampers from the co-founders' pockets, which sparked the idea to send donations. It served as the catalyst for the subsequent cause. House of Mercy began the cause to feed widows after focusing on the life of a wonderful generous lady and grand mother, Matilda, a widow who raised 8 grand children on her own.

"Remembering to Feed Widows" is a cause closely connected to our hearts, as we have seen widows struggling to make ends meet on many occasions. The global pandemic that has resulted in a rise in food costs that is out of control for even the most average person and has made 2020 even more difficult. House of mercy vowed to support widows and  distributed food hampers to 11 families in December as an initial start. 

House of Mercy started formally operating in Middlesbrough for the purpose of providing social welfare and educational projects to both UK and international locations.

The "Confident Readers Who Love To Write" club was launched. Children aged 5 to 16 from Middlesbrough are now being funded and loving reading books donated by the National Literacy Trust Middlesbrough and stationery from Tees Valley Together.
