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.
The metal cots and worn-out mattresses have lulled generations of Kasisi kids to sleep, but are now in desperate need of replacement.
Our dream is to make the babies’ bedrooms look like a truly homely, safe environment that is associated with warmth. Will you help us make this dream a reality?
