Forum: Visiting Kenyan Pastor to Discuss Community Outreach to Nairobi Poor
On Thursday, March 8, St. Anna’s Greek Orthodox Church will host a special forum discussion that will feature Rev. Joseph Mumita of Kenya, East Africa. He will discuss efforts to help feed and enrich the lives of some of Kenya’s poorest children and how people can become involved.
“It’s not often that we host someone from East Africa who is so involved in helping God’s poorest children,” said Father Christopher Flesoras. “We are very pleased to be hosting Rev. Joseph and look forward to hearing about what is going on in Kenya.”
Projects Rev. Joseph will discuss include:
- Daily lunch feeding of more than 400 school children who would otherwise only get one meal a day.
- Efforts to support an AIDS orphanage. In 2008, Rev. Joseph climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to help raise money for the orphanage.
- Putting a roof on his church so his congregation can more effectively serve the poor.
