He was just four days old when he was brought to Kasisi. His mother is mentally ill and we’re not sure she’s even aware of his existence. He was put up for adoption but returned to the orphanage after his adoptive mother became overwhelmed by fear.
He is repeating the fourth grade. The aunties are working with him and he has made progress. He has already improved his results. He likes the individual lessons. He works well then. He is a calm boy.
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.
