ABOUT THE ARTISAN
Mercy House Global is located just outside Houston, Texas, a city of more than 70,000 refugees, one of the largest populations in the USA. MHG employs about ten women who have resettled in Houston. This group of artisans called Local Hope creates candles, spa products, and home decor for the MHG fair trade line. In addition to job creation, MHG provides programs to support the local refugee community, including ESPOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) and empowerment luncheons that offer fellowship and skills training.
