St. Tabitha’s House Orphanage - Kisumu, Kenya

St. Tabitha’s House is a Christian orphanage under the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria started in the Kibera Slums of Kenya. They currently house 26 children, providing food, shelter academic and spiritual education and so much more. St. Tabith’s House was founded by Fr. Agapios Lipesa and his wife Papadia Dorah. He was assigned the rector of St. George the Great Martyr parish in the Kibera Slums in the Kisumu Diocese in Kenya. As part of his work as a parish priest, he consistently saw the horrific conditions that the people of Kibera lived in. At the same time he felt a strong love for the orphans who make up the most vulnerable of the population.
