Edmund arrived in Kasisi on February 17, 2018. On that day, there was a huge a storm in the area. Edmund’s mother tried to seek refuge from the storm in a hut but to no avail. She was struck by lightning and died on the spot. It is a mystery how Edmund survived the accident but upon finding the boy, residents of a neighboring village immediately brought him to Kasisi in an attempt to save his life. We didn’t know his name so one of the sisters decided to name him Edmund after Bl. Edmund Bojanowski, founder of the Servants’ Congregation and their homes, schools and orphanages.
Santa Claus never had it easy in Kasisi 😉 Over 230 children live here. Sister Mariola has already rushed to his aid and is quietly preparing presents!
Many of us still leave a free seat at the Christmas Eve table. Let one of our children sit at it this year (at a distance, but very much for real) and invite them to the table today!
