At Orthodox Africa, we work very hard to help our missions become self-sustaining. The Diocese of Kisumu in Western Kenya is no exception. Together the volunteers of Orthodox Africa and donors like you have come together to make the dream of self-sustainability a reality for our Orthodox Brothers and Sisters in Kenya.
In 2017 our Director sat down with His Grace, Bishop Athanasius of Kisumu and all Western Kenya and asked him what Orthodox Africa could do to help him. At that time, His Grace said that he would like Orthodox Africa to help his Diocese purchase a van that they could use as a taxi.
His Grace has calculated that after paying for fuel, a driver and maintenance on the van, the Diocese will be able to generate anywhere from $500 to $1,000 a month which will go directly to supporting the many missions that are spreading the Light of Orthodoxy every day.
Because of your generosity, we have raised $8,560 of the $15,000 that the Diocese needs to pay for a Toyota four-wheel drive van that will seat 17 people. The Diocese has recently ordered this van from Japan, and it will arrive in mid-August. This is an incredible first step that we could have never accomplished without your help! But we still need your help.
Please make a donation today to help us raise the remaining $6,440 that is needed for the down-payment on this van. Rest assured that your donation will go directly to assisting Bishop Athanasius as he plants and nourishes Orthodox Communities in Western Kenya. Click here.
