The boy with these big thoughtful eyes is Kenneth, a child who has been with us in Kasisi since he was a baby. How time flies – the boy will soon be 10 years old! When he came to us as an infant, he was very neglected and needed urgent medical care. Over the years, we have covered every challenging step that Kenneth has taken – from his urgent need to put on some weight, to his recovery from a very serious viral infection, through to his recovery from paralysis. All of you, and especially the boy’s adoptive parents, are authors of this success story!
The boy’s 2-week holiday stay at Home is slowly coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean it was spent lazing around – Kenneth attended physiotherapy classes several times, giving it his all. He is a brave boy.
We know from his engagement and, above all, his smile that he is a big fan of the sensory aids that you donated to the children some time ago. As Kenneth has problems with concentration, we were even more amazed to see that he managed to sit in front of the light table for a considerable amount of time doing a colourful puzzle. It is at times like these that we see that what we are doing with all your boundless support really does make a huge difference. Thanks to this support, children like Kenneth can fight for every extra inch on the map of independence.
Thank you for creating opportunities for children like Kenneth, for being there for us when a little one with new and urgent needs comes along, and for always being ready to create a real Home for a child. Stop by and see Kenneth today – send him support and love by becoming adoptive parents, or donate physiotherapy equipment or tasty vitamins to help him spread his wings every day!
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.
