Η Αγία Ειρήνη των παιδιών της Αφρικής...

 
 
St Irene Orthodox mission center Kenya was founded in May 2010 by Fr Constantinos Muthiru and his wife Papadia Teresa.
Fr. Constantinos and his wife grew up in extreme poverty and received their educations from Orthodox sponsors. Upon graduation from school, they both decided to give back to society by taking care of the needy.
Saint Irene’s mission started in a rented room that served as both a church and a catechetical classroom. Papadia Teresa was instrumental during the formative years of the mission center, during which time Fr. Constantinos was a  student at the Makarios III Seminary in Nairobi. It was during these first three years that St. Irene Mission Center developed into what it is today.
Saint Irene’s Orthodox Mission now assists 96 vulnerable children suffering from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty. Some live with sick parents and elderly guardians who are physically and sexually abusive, while others are entirely dependent and live with caregivers employed by the mission.
Services provided are food, clothing, shelter, child care, education, health care, catechism, and spiritual guidance.
