In its effort to organize the Christian Orthodox presence in Southeast Asia, the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople established the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and South East Asia in 1996 and the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Singapore and South Asia in 2008.

The two Metropolitanates encompass 23 countries in their spiritual jurisdiction. They try to activate a network of missions and charities in places where the orthodox message is literally heard for the first time.

Unfortunately, the two Metropolitanates lack experienced personnel and funds.

During the last few years, mainly because of the general economic crisis, donations from friendly missionaries have been drastically reduced. We experience, on a daily basis, the sad consequences and the continuous struggle of our Metropolitanates to survive.

We ask for your help. For your information, you will find below a list with all the activities and the financial requirements that the two Metropolitanates need to cover.
