In 1974 Rob & Jean Dunk were challenged to adopt John Wesley’s perspective on Christianity – “The world is my parish”. They, with the support of their city-based church in Brisbane, Australia, helped and supported many people and organisations around the world that were making a difference in people’s lives.
In the early 1980’s Rob & Jean focused on Thailand, each year they held teaching seminars across Thailand for Pastors. It was during these times that they were challenged to do something for the disadvantaged children of Thailand.
Mercy International was commenced in 1985 by Rob & Jean with the support of their church. The sole aim of Mercy International is to help disadvantaged children reach their highest potential.
