About Us

We help women in cultures where
suffering and oppression are rampant.

"My heart was broken...I had to do something."

-Suellen Roberts, Founder of Christian Women in Media and Heart of Mercy Mission
Meet Our Leadership Team

Women and girls around the world are suffering in unspeakable ways, simply because they are female.

For those of us in the United States, it's difficult to relate to the abuse and persecution they face on a daily basis. But once we are made aware, how can we stand by and do nothing?

Heart of Mercy Mission was established in 2019 as the humanitarian arm of Christian Women in Media Association after Suellen Roberts visited India and Albania and saw the suffering firsthand. She wanted to put heartfelt compassion into action and give hope to the hopeless...feeding them, loving them, and leading them to Jesus. Only His powerful hope can lift them up above their circumstances, giving inner peace in the midst.


We partner with small, trusted, in-country Christian organizations and churches
who are already in place to meet the needs of these women and their children.

Generators are needed right now to survive freezing temperatures. We have raised funds to purchase two and are close to enough for a third one. What a blessing it is to help provide for these dear ones in Ukraine.
