Kenyan Bishop Appeals for Orphan Aid: Parental Deaths Due to HIV

Kenyan Bishop Appeals for Orphan Aid

Parental Deaths Due to HIV 

The Rt Revd John Orina Omangi, Bishop of the Kisii Missionary District in Eastern Kenya is appealing for assistance in caring for 100 children orphaned by the widespread HIV problem in the area.  Kisii Missionary District is slated to become its own diocese within the Anglican Church in Kenya in January 2022.

To that end, Bishop John has started, Heart for Orphans & Vulnerable Children in the village of Gezonso in the Nyakembene region of Kisii County.  Gesonso is also the location of a new parish within the diocese in formation.  

At present, the 100 orphaned children are being cared for by the four local Anglican parishes.  According to official Kenyan government statistics, approximately 8% of the adults in Kisii County are HIV positive.  Gesonso is in a very rural area east of Lake Victoria.

The local congregation has been leading the effort.  It costs £22.50/child/month to provide a subsistence diet (mainly maize) for the orphans.

Readers of the English Churchman who have the ability to assist may donate electronically through their local bank or traditional mail.
