“Snapshots of life after death” is how Sister Mariola captioned the set of photographs, which are as hot as yam fritters. Everyone here has probably come into contact with the virus. Fortunately, most have made it through the illness without any issues. Everything is back to normal. Sister Jolanta, about whom we were most worried, is going for her first walk today, during which, as usual, she will check whether the boys have been looking after the area around their houses. She is regaining her strength and sense of humour.
Kasisi is on the final straight to post-covid reality. Of course, everyone is still staying at home. School activities have been put on hold and the authorities are looking for ways to cope with the crowds of patients in the hospitals. Entry into the country is restricted, but thanks to you, nothing has been in short supply in Kasisi so far. All we need now is to urgently rebuild our stock of medicines, which has been severely depleted by the virus in recent days. They are not needed at the moment, but could come in handy at any time. Therefore, there is no time to wait! If you can, please stop by for some medicine shopping and help us replenish our stocks. This is not the end of the emergency and we cannot afford to run out of essential medical supplies when there are not enough places in the hospitals.
We are preparing for another trip to deliver what is most needed. Your help can head to Zambia with us, if only you decide to take a moment and drop by our shop of good.
P.S. As for the yam fritters, we can only dream about them, as there are supposedly none left. All is forgiven though, because the sudden return of appetite is further proof that everything in Kasisi is back to normal.
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.
