This little boy is here at Kasisi with his sister. The children are from Rwanda but fled the Congo to Zambia along with their mother, who loves them dearly. She is working and learning English in order to provide a decent living for her children. Fleeing violence in the Congo has not derailed this family, they maintain a positive attitude while they wait to be reunited. Elijah is a spirited, active boy who brings a positive energy to the preschool.
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.
