His mother left him with a shaman who convinced her that Gift was possessed by evil spirits that could only be driven out through starvation. The boy was then nearly starved to death. When his health was so poor he was on the brink of life and death, the shaman ordered to bring him to a hospital and leave him there. Soon after, he came to Kasisi.
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.
