15th Annual Fluke Fishing Tournament
The Mercy Home Foundation evolved out of a friendship between Father Francis Ravi, a Catholic priest originating from Tamil Nadu, India, and Mark Finelli. Father Francis moved to the US to work at the Saint Joan of Arc Parish in New Jersey, where the two met.
Why is this charity so dear to us? Father Francis became part of our family, and he revealed to us the atrocities that were going on in some of the more impoverished parts of India. Children were left on the side of the road due to birth defects. Women who were being beaten and unable to care for themselves.
Father Francis was very passionate about this cause and as a part of our family we dedicated the last 15 years to creating a home for over 100 women and children.
We are a 100% charity. To us, that means 100% of the money you donate will go directly to the projects we built in India. We have no salaries, just passion towards a cause so dear to our hearts.
