"Angel of Mercy" was founded in November 2005 by Relindis Oyebog, a Registered Nurse in the state of Minnesota, USA. Relindis was born in Bamenda, Cameroon. She grew up in a small-town called Limbe but spent all her summer vacations helping her grandmother in Bambui.
She completed her Elementary, Secondary, and High School education in Cameroon, where she attained her Ordinary Level and Advanced Level certifications. She came to the USA in 1986 to further her studies.
Today, she has earned college degrees in Health Sciences, Nursing and is currently working on a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership. She has a successful career as a Registered Nurse, working as an Administrative Nursing Supervisor in an LTACH (Long Term Acute Care Hospital) in the state of Minnesota.
Relindis started "Angel of Mercy," a non-profit organization as a way of helping HIV/AIDS patients, the underprivileged and orphaned children in her country. Her goal is to assist and make a difference in the lives of those who have not been blessed with the opportunities she had as a child. It is her own way of giving back to her society and living the legacy of her parents and grandmother.
