MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF THE NUBA PEOPLE

Donate to the Mother of Mercy Hospital
Now you can directly support Dr. Tom Catena’s life-saving work in the Nuba mountains. Every dollar donated to Dr. Tom’s Mother of Mercy Hospital through the Take Heart Foundation goes to Dr. Tom and the Mother of Mercy hospital to buy supplies, including vaccines and syringes, to support the local school and, most importantly, to continue to train the Nuba staff and prepare surgeons to one day operate their hospital independently. You can also expand your influence even further and become a fund raiser for Dr. Tom.
