St. Tabitha House Kisumu
moving to the Diocese of Kisumu to be under the direct
spiritual guidance and directorship of His Grace Bishop Athanasius Akunda Bishop of Kisumu and Western Kenya. Father Agapios will be running the orphanage. We are moving the orphanage due to recent violence in the area and the death of 2 children due to lack of medical care. We are in need of $6,000.00 to move the children and staff as well as Father Agapios, Presbytera Dora and their children, and pay rent for the new facilities. I would be so grateful for any help that you could give to help us.
Currently we have 2 OCMC missionaries visiting for 2 weeks from Hellenic College/Holy Cross School of Theology. A married couple, Dean and Xenia are here to help with building and teaching
We are in dire need of funding for all the day to day expenses for running the St. Tabitha Orphanage and School.
We wish to thank the Romanian Orthodox Church of Europe for the Spiritual And financial help in building the Orphanage.
Please join with us as we continue to grow under the leadership of His Grace Bishop Athanasius Akunda of Kisumu and Western Kenya.
We currently have some, but not all of the children in school because of lack of funding for school fees. The Staff have not been paid in 2 months as well. We are grateful for the donations as we have been able to feed the 29 children and staff. We are prayerfully asking for donations to help run the orphanage, feed the animals, pay the staff and get the rest of the children in school. They are thriving living away from the Kibera Slum. Father returns to Kibera Slum frequently to see if he can find abandoned or neglected children. We need $600.00 per month to thrive and grow . Thank you all for all you have done so far and please continue the journey with us.
