About us

Mercy International Women’s Outreach Foundation was founded in 2019 by Mrs. Cherise Forbes. Raised in the beautiful twin-island republic of Trinidad & Tobago, Cherise always had two passions, doing business and helping women. After giving her life to Christ in 2006, she began to understand that the call on her life was for women’s ministry and is determined to fulfill her purpose in this regard.

In obedience to God, Cherise established Mercy IWOF, to execute the mandate God has given her to touch and transform the lives of women worldwide with His love. 

With scars from her own personal battles, she is committed to helping women through the foundation, to understand what the love of God can do, mind, body and spirit and to live purpose-filled lives.

Under the covering of Apostle Wayne Andrews, her spiritual father, she, together with her team, are on a mission to touch and transform the lives of women around the world.

Our Mission

To embrace each woman we encounter and assist with enabling her complete rehabilitation i.e. emotionally, physically and spiritually. To this end we open our doors to clients with various experiences including domestic violence, rape, failed suicide attempts, drug abuse and others.

Operating within the shores of Trinidad in the twin island republic of Trinidad & Tobago, this institution facilitates a series of life changing programs that help restore broken lives. We believe that hope starts at home within our communities and country and extends to the world. We partner with churches of the Christian community, government agencies, ministries, individuals and private sector businesses.

Our programs include

  • Individual & Family Counselling
  • Empowerment through Training & Skills Development (M.A.T.A.A.)
  • Mentorship & Spiritual Development
  • Love & Care providing food and clothing supplies
  • Community & International Outreach Services
    We give every life we touch a living example of the love of God, the epitome of mercy for you, me and the world.
