This morning at 10 we laid Christopher to rest in the Kasisi cemetery. His funeral mass was attended by residents and friends of Kasisi, all of whom were stunned by his sudden passing.
Christopher was a bright and talented young boy. In the words of Kasia Stęgowska, a volunteer who grew close to Christopher during her two stays at Kasisi: “Christopher didn’t talk much about himself, it took him time to learn how to trust people and open up to them. I got to know him better in the evenings I spent helping him with his homework and learned that he wanted to become a football player or entrepreneur when he grew up. His biggest passion was football and he was great at it. He liked to read and draw, and taught me how to play the drum. “It’s so simple, Kasia, just hit it like this!” – he would explain. Everything seemed to come to him so easily.”
Goodbye Christopher, we will miss you dearly.
Eva and James are our medical students – talented, hardworking and grateful for every little support. They know that thanks to you they have been given a life opportunity. Now they can lead their lives as they dreamed of.
Today we ask you to join the fundraiser for the next semester of their studies. Curriculum – not funding – should be the only thing for our children to worry about. Let’s make sure they have a place in the medical world!
