Testimonies...

Since I remember myself ministering in the spiritual field of Africa, I recollect the Orthodox Missionary Fraternity supporting the struggle of the Church of Alexandria…
- Patriarch Theodore II of Alexandria & all Africa
With meager means, your Fraternity started a struggle of many difficulties, pains and sacrifices. And today, you are in the first line to give the best and most valuable, to comfort, spiritually and materially, our suffering, disprivileged, downtrodden brothers. And you pulled it off. You have faith and firmness in your aims and pursuits…
- Metropolitan Makarios of Kenya
We, the Ugandans, are grateful to your Fraternity as it was the first one to support the Church in Uganda, and has been by our side ever since at all costs, showing great understanding and admirable patience, being a modest helper and supporter throughout its course…
- Bishop Innocentios of Burundi & Rwanda
The Orthodox Missionary Fraternity has stood with godly ardor by the pioneers of the saving word of the Bible in their laborious struggles and their contribution was determinant for the sowing of the Orthodox faith and the comforting of our ailing fellow man in the continent of the future…
- Bishop Panteleimon of Brazzaville & Gabon
Without the Orthodox Missionary Fraternity, many of the projects we have made in Sierra Leone would not have been realized. Your assistance so far has been invaluable…
- Fr. Themistoklis Adamopoulo
Malawi is one of the poorest countries in Africa and because of the contaminated water, cholera, malaria and typhoid fever are still weakening the country. Your Fraternity, with the help of socially sensitive people, keeps on opening wells in Malawi and saving lives…
- Fr. Ermolaos Iatrou


Orthodox Missionary Fraternity is a supporting organization dedicated to helping the efforts of the Orthodox missionaries all over the world. It is a charitable association officially registered with the state of Greece, administratively independent, spiritually belonging to the Church of Greece and audited yearly by the municipal authorities of Thessaloniki.
Our Fraternity was established in 1963 under the name “Friends of Uganda” by the zealous missionary Fr. Chrysostomos Papasarantopoulos (1903-1972), who first opened the roads of modern Eastern Orthodox Mission in Sub-Saharan Africa, when in 1961 he visited Uganda. The unprecedented experiences and imperative needs he faced made him to write to his spiritual friends:
“Help me. People here are thirsty for Orthodoxy, for Christ, and they are hungry at the same time”.
