Our Mission and Vision 

Acts of Mercy's (AOM) vision is to mobilize the Church to engage, train and prepare in order to offer practical help in times of disaster and to bring sustainable transformation to communities locally and around the world.

Haiti Earthquake Response

On August 14, a powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti's southern peninsula, resulting in a death toll over 2,200 (the number is expected to grow), with 12,000 injured and many still missing.

Acts of Mercy International is responding by sending in 2 waves of medical teams. The first team landed in Port-au-Prince Saturday 8/21. They will take much-needed medicines, supplies and medical care to the city of Jeremie (near the epicenter). Because of landslides, earthquake debris and security issues, the roads are blocked and Jeremie is only accessible by plane. With great thanks to some friends, our teams have found a way to get in!

If you are interested on being on a team and available, please contact Evelyn ASAP and register to go below. We are in the process of putting together a second team, leaving from LAX this Friday, August 27 and returning Sept 4. After assessing the needs on the ground, we may send more teams. Per Haiti’s requirement, all team members must be fully vaccinated and have a negative COVID PCR test 72 hours prior to departure.
Can't go, but want to still get involved? Participate below!

Volunteer at the Vaccine Clinics

As the demand for the COVID vaccine is increasing due to the rise of cases and the new vaccine mandates, we will be starting the vaccine clinics up again. If you are interested and want to serve, please sign up on the form(s) below for the following dates:
Sunday August 22, 1 pm - 7 pm
Saturday September 18, 9 am - 3 pm

We are partnering with the county, the city, local churches, community centers, and schools to bring access to the vaccine to areas hardest hit in LA and who have the greatest challenges to accessing it even after they qualify. Signing up to serve may include working at 1 or multiple stations including registration (interacting with patients and inputting their info into an online form), observation (sharing normal symptoms, praying & sharing a story of hope if they are interested), vaccination (if a clinical professional), and set-up/take-down. After you fill out the forms below, you will receive an email that you are cleared by Medical Missions Adventures (MMA) and an email for when you are officially scheduled to serve. These emails may take a few days or up to a week.

If you have any questions or comments, email Evelyn Lo at evelyn@epicentrechurch.org.
No experience necessary for non-clinical roles and training is provided.
