Mercy Works

Level 3.6 - Mercy Works

TARGET

By December 2020, we the personnel of the Mercy Works Kiunga Program along with the Diocesan Services, Parishes and Collaborators have discovered the Demands of Faith by following the way of Jesus. We lived our faith through relating to God, others and nature in a new way by being responsible and committed "AS DISCIPLES OF JESUS" in our planned and programmed activities with other networking partners. In doing so we have witnessed to our Faith.

Rationale (Reasons)


SITUATION

The Mercy Work Kiunga Program (MWKP) is in partnership with the diocese. We reach out to the villages in collaboration and cooperation with the others Services especially for improving health and social wellbeing. This program is supporting the Diocese Reyenai Plantation project. We assist many people with the limited resources that we have. However we have also difficulties with transport and this creates delays in our work. We still have problem with communication with the villages and with others Services for the effective monitoring of our progress. The difficulties since the time of transition, from a Mercy Sister in charge to us three nationals are still going. At the same time the limitation of knowledge and skills of the staff is affecting the implementation of the programs.

IDEAL

The presence of Mercy Work Kiunga Program changes the way of living of people on issues of health and social wellbeing. We, the staff have better knowledge and skills and at the same time are more committed to do our work. We have a better way of dialoguing and working in partnership with the Diocese and the Services.

CONVERSION

  • From less knowledge, skill and commitment of the staff to have more knowledge, skill and commitment.
  • From lack of communication to better communication for the improvement of the Service to the people.
  • From little spirit of responsibility and ownership to take on ownership of the Program and greater sense of responsibility.
SPECIFIC CRITERIA:

  • We plan and program our activities according to the proposed budget.
  • We organize actions that people can do and are meaningful for them.
  • The way we organize our activities is easy to follow, helps the people to feel at ease and gives everyone a chance to belong and participate.
