Everything runs like clockwork here. At 11:00 sharp, the whole of Kasisi meets in the dining room. Today for lunch there is chicken, nshima and a Zambian equivalent of our spinach. Although not to the taste of all children in Poland, such a meal is a dream lunch in Zambia. Thanks to you, the sisters can afford to serve it to over 200 children!
As you know, a well-balanced diet has been one of our key investments for years. Although it’s hard to see its spectacular effect right away, every day it translates into better health, fewer medical expenses, better academic performance, joy and energy that just bubbles up from all over Kasisi.
Investing in a change of diet is difficult for many reasons. First of all, because you can’t just do it once, sit back and simply enjoy the results. You have to finance it regularly and wait patiently for the effects. We have lived to see them, but now, with food prices skyrocketing due to economic problems affecting the whole world, we have to fight for our pantry again! Not helping either is the war in Ukraine, which is posing the threat of a food crisis throughout Africa. Another problem is the extremely high exchange rate of the dollar, which means that we have to spend an extra 6000 PLN a month on kitchen expenses alone.
Without you we will not be able to keep the kitchen running at the same level, so we are asking you for a very specific thing. Visit our pantry now and donate at least one basket of vegetables! Let there be no lack of healthy food in Kasisi! This is what brings all these smiles that we are sending you today straight from Zambia!
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.
