The last days in Kasisi have been full of joy. Not only Eva, but also James has returned home to get some rest after another challenging year at university. James hasn’t been home for two years. What’s more, he has brought a suitcase full of Polish sweets. You can imagine what a treat that is, especially for the little ones. All that’s left of the Polish fudge are sweet memories and empty wrappers.
James is an amazing role model for the children. One can see that the teachings of his mother figure, Sister Mariola, did not go to waste. Despite great difficulties with the first-year medical program, our brave student did not give up. Very soon he will become a doctor!
He is two years away from this title. This seems just around the corner from one perspective, because we know that James has the biggest challenge behind him and that he will pass the next exams with flying colours. Yet, it also seems a long way ahead because we, as his parents, have to bear the considerable expense of his tuition fees and the cost of living in Bydgoszcz.
However, our boy deserves what may at first seem unattainable, because he has proved himself that nothing is impossible. He has shown that if you want something badly enough, the sky’s the limit.
There is still 38 000 PLN left to raise for the next semester of university for our brave doctors-to-be. It is enough for each of us to support the fundraiser with the equivalent of a packet of our favourite sweets.
Your every contribution, even the slightest, means another day at university, a textbook or lunch for a busy student. Support the fundraiser and make the dreams of education come true.
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.
