Dominic came to Kasisi with his sister, Opra. The children had most likely been abandoned by their mother. They spent their first days in Kasisi receiving medical care. With their cheerful attitudes and fun-loving, outgoing personalities they immediately won over Kasisi’s sisters and volunteers. Dominic is full of energy. All it takes for him to start dancing is a few beats of music. When he first got here, he loved greeting everyone with the words “How are you?” – this has become his signature phrase. He is a quick learner – he learned how to count to ten in English in just a few minutes. We expect him to become on of the boys’ leaders. Dominic is also very protective over his sister and always keeps a close eye on her.
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.
