Sisters. Missionaries who dedicate their lives to saving the lives of young Zambians and giving back their childhood. They are the silent heroes of the Kasisi Children’s Home. They transform our help and commitment into new opportunities for those from whom fate wanted to take everything at the beginning of their lives.
Mother’s Day is coming up. The sisters in Kasisi are mothers to over 200 children, to whom they show as much care and love every day as it takes to fill the great void created by harm and loneliness. Among them there is Sister Jolanta, the oldest Polish missionary on the African continent, Sister Mariola, who watches over the whole home, and twin Sisters Janina and Marysia. There is also Sister Faustyna, Sister Teresa, physiotherapist Sister Gertrude and Sister Noami. They all share their duties and work together like cogs in a precise machine.
It is them that we want to honour today and thank a lot for their maternal care. And since the sisters never want anything for themselves and always want to give everything to the children, let’s give a great present today on the occasion of Mother’s Day… to the children. A library is under construction. To help finish and equip it, give Kasisi a book from our charity shop. Instead of a flower, which will wilt, let’s create something that will stay in Kasisi for generations!
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.
