St. Irene Mission Center: Enlarging the Land

St. Irene Orthodox Mission Center is an institution that supports orphans and vulnerable children. It was started in the year 2010 by Father Constantinos and Papadhia Teresa, who have played a great role since its inception up to date. It started from a humble single room which was used as a classroom; as well as a church, and for catechism lessons. After a period of seven years of struggle, the Mission now consists of 96 children.

One of the major challenges of this Mission, is land. Father Constantinos indicates that it has not been able to purchase land of its own; and that rent is very expensive. Lack of land restricts the Mission from building permanent structures, and drilling wells, for its orphans. These items are desperately needed to better care for the children.

   

Fortunately, the land where the mission is situated is being sold for $50,000 of which $3,000 has been saved for this purpose. On behalf of St. Irene Orthodox Mission, Father Constantinos requests your best effort to help raise the rest of the remaining money. With negotiation, he is sure the seller would accept $30,000.
