Review for MERCYS VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL, El Segundo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Mercy's Village is wonderful example of what happens when beautiful hearts and brilliant minds collide. My wife and I have been amazed by the incredible impact this organization has had not only on our own lives, but of those of our children. Our girls' understanding of how small this world really is and the importance of helping others is a concept that could not have been taught in text books or by watching Discovery channel. And now, by having a direct connection to a remote region of the world (Gulu, Uganda) via Mercy's Village, our family now has real dialogue and a relationship with a group of people 10,000 miles away from our home in Los Angeles, but that distance seems to be getting shorter and shorter with every loving letter and smiling photo exchanged between my two daughters and their Ugandan friend, Sharon.
