On Saturday, our four-year-old Gabriel returned from the hospital, but that doesn’t mean we can rest on our laurels! The little boy is eager to eat, and we (knowing that a full plate was not a norm for the boy) are teaching him regular meal times and that his plate will always be full – whenever he needs it. Recovery from hunger disease will continue for another year – that’s how long the whole nutrition cycle takes. Only then will the boy achieve a stable increase in weight that will enable him to develop healthily.
In the meantime, we are doing our best to build a cocoon of love and security around Gabriel that he did not experience in his family home. We try to show him anew that adults can be trusted – that we will take care of him and that he will always have someone to whom he can turn with his problems. Will you become a part of the warmth with which we want to surround the little boy?
We hope that Christopher’s death, which was an unexpected tragic event for the whole Kasisi, will kick off a chain reaction of good. Because of this, we started the Christopher Sakala Fund. With this fund, we support children being treated on the oncological ward at the hospital in Lusaka.
