Mercy Link was established in the year 2008 in California. It specializes in importing olive wood carvings from the old country – The Holy Land – also known as Israel and Palestine. These carvings include crosses, Bibles, Christmas ornaments, nativity sets, last supper sets, and much more. Carving and crafting of olive wood is a traditional trade among many Christian families in the Holy Land.
Mercy Link imports these handcrafted items from many fine artisans including a school located on the outskirts of Bethlehem. What is so special about this school is, that it serves children with learning disabilities, unfortunate, those with special needs and orphans. These students learn this craft in addition to their school curriculum. This skill will equip the children to support themselves later in life. The school’s main support comes from selling these carvings. Being a link of mercy between the East and the West inspired the owner to choose “Mercy Link” as a name for the business.
