Steven is at Kasisi with his twin brother, Christopher(Christopher died of leukemia on July 15, 2020). He was born under tragic circumstances. His mother showed up at a local clinic to give birth under medical supervision. She was not admitted, however, as she failed to bring a pair of gloves for the doctor, a local requirement for patients who wish to see a doctor. The pregnant woman did not make it back home in time and gave birth on the side of the road, which cost her her life. Following her death, her family brought the twins 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.
