Bala mercy childrens centre [bmcc] was established informally in 1999/2000 by bishop Domnic O.Ochoo, while doing pastoral work and evangelizing , the same community where the main centre is established , in the early years of between the 80s and 90s from 1992,to 2000s there were the rates of hiv/aids was so high that the rate of deaths were 700 aday, .and it was while pasturing in the greater bala village in koyugi location, that in one days, we conducted five funerals of those who died from hiv/aids later the families left children and due to stigma associated with hiv/aids , no one was willing to take in the children who left orphans. This why bmcc was started , and from 10,to 20 , and the number grew to over 400 in one location.
