"Lighten a Church" is a service that brings together Priests or Parish Council Officers who need goods and facilities for their Church that can not afford to acquire and Donators that are willing to support. The service gives the ability to our site visitors to donate to Churches with specific contributions that the corresponding Priests have previously selected.
The service utilises the World Orthodox Directory to publish the Church needs. The Directory currently includes more than 10.000 entries. For each Church in the Directory there is a Need-list in which the responsible Priest can add goods that needs to have for the Church. On the other hand, OramaWorld Visitors that wish to support, can use the Directory to find the Church they are interested to help, browse the Church Need-list and if they decide to donate to move items from the Church Need-list to their Shopping Carts and purchase them for the Church.
