M.E.R. Memorial Academy funds its organization by membership taxation and by organizing and facilitating fundraising activities. We seek support directly from businessmen, corporations, humanitarian and charitable organizations, schools, hospitals, civic organizations and anyone else who can help make a difference.

We support orphaned children and widows who are victims of the deadly Ebola virus. Established in order to rescue orphans and homeless children from poverty, illiteracy, and disease, we help support them and are seeking ways to provide them with marketable skills/activities whereby they can become self-supporting.
