Healthcare Program

We believe that good health enables people and communities to define their own future. Without good health, a child cannot meet their full potential, and communities miss out on a chance to grow and contribute to their collective well being. Access to quality healthcare is not a privilege, it is a human right and we work towards making that a reality for everyone, especially the poorest. Our mission is to serve kids so that they can build healthier and happier futures. We do this through the provision of sustainable medical relief and health based development programmes at the Mission Center.

Why support us?

We believe everyone has the basic human right to good healthcare. Our work would not be possible without donors and committed supporters like you. We aim to share with you regularly where funds have been spent. We realise that sustainability comes by being committed to local communities for the long term. Our cultural approach allows us to understand how things get done locally. We avoid all forms of corruption and ensure donor funds are spent transparently, wisely and with a high level of scrutiny.

The Program

Nutrition

Many children suffer from poor nutrition in the society. The effects are many fold leaving children more vulnerable to disease but also adversely affecting their education, both of which locks these children in a poverty cycle which becomes harder to escape. Your support provides additional daily nutrition for up to 200 kids at St Irene Orthodox Mission Centre and Orphanage.

Children might get sick in the orphanage and still need medical care and require medical attention.
To facilitate this the mission spends

  • Donate $2 monthly to cater for 1 child in the orphanage
  • Donate $58 monthly to cater for quarter of the population of children in the orphanage.
  • Donate $117 monthly to cater for half of the population of children in the orphanage.

Donating to St. Irene Orthodox Mission means you make lives better for vulnerable children at St Irene Orthodox Mission & Orphanage in Kenya. We are proud that 92.8 percent of donations go straight to supporting our service projects.. Your financial help makes all this happen, and more.
