St Merkorious Charity is not just a good idea that was born of necessity. It is a commission by God to reach and help the poor. It is not a challenge that can be fulfilled by one person. Rather, it is a mission of compassion that can only be achieved when each of us puts our hand to the plough so that together we can do God’s work with love in our heart.

Why should I become a sponsor?

St Merkorious Charity provides meals to many people in need every week but often clients require additional assistance. Families who live on limited incomes can be tipped into financial crisis by a single increase in expenses. These unexpected costs can come in many forms; school excursions, medical bills, the need to pay for household repairs.

By becoming a sponsor, you are able to provide the extra income when it is needed most. 100% of the money you provide will be made available to clients in need.

Provide a Plate

sponsoring a family to provide a plate allows people to purchase groceries that are more nutritious and may allow them to include fresh fruit, vegetables and quality meat to feed every member of the family. This money ensures school students can have lunch and no parent goes without to feed the children

Beat the Bills

providing sponsorship to cover the rising cost of household bills can ensure families do not need to enter the endless cycle of debt and interest repayments which can occur when they are unable to meet unexpectedly high bills. It may also help elderly people keep the heat on during winter and ensure they do not develop pneumonia or other life-threatening illnesses

First Aid

providing sponsorship to cover medical expenses can assist people when they are most in need. Medical treatment, hospital stays and even prescriptions can be expensive. Often the health issues are further complicated when the income earner is the one who is ill. The reduced family income can not meet the cost of treatment. This money provides aid when it is first needed.

Stay in School

sponsorship to help families and elderly people meet rising rental costs can mean the difference between staying at home and becoming homeless. In Australia today, the people most likely to become homeless are older, single or widowed women. For a few dollars extra every week, your sponsorship can ensure they continue to have a place to call home.
