Our goal is to aid others to the extent of our ability, beginning with our monasteries, as they are the pillar of our faith without which there would be no church. Please join us in serving, and giving back to those that have been praying and fasting continually for the Church Christ died for.
Eritrean Tewahdo monasteries have been one of the first in its kind, next to that of copts, out of the African continent as a whole. They are the pillars for sound and correct teaching of the Tewahdo Orthodox Church. Historically in the state of Eritrea there were over 300 monasteries. However, currently on the top of lack of adequate maintenance over the years; neglect of these historical places since colonial periods; and lack of rain and drought which have forced monks to leave the monasteries, COVID-19 has posed a major problem within our Monasteries. Due to COVID-19, each Monastery who used to get financial help through alms of the visitors have come to none. The existing few monasteries, due to lack of financial help, are on the verge of closing. Some of them don’t even have a roof or have a leaking roof on top of the Church in the monastery. Some Fathers/Monks/ are leaving leaky, unsafe, hazardous monasteries to another seeking to be in a mildly improved monastery financially. Not only are the places inadequate but also due to less rain and drought, the church fathers are forced to leave their original monastery to another bigger “able” monastery to pray for all of us.
