David came to Kasisi together with his twin brother Robbson. They were about a week old when we adopted them at the HOME. The boys’ mum died during childbirth. The father could not afford to support the twins. After the death of his wife, he had to make the decision to give them up to the orphanage because he is unable to take care of the two tiny children on his own, nor can he afford milk to replace their mother’s breast milk. His extended family is unable to help.
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.
