Sydney came to Kasisi together with his twin brothers, Edward and the younger Joseph. Their homeless grandmother brought them to social services and disappeared. From there the boys came to us. We know nothing about them, except that their parents are dead. We don’t know where they used to live, how long they wandered the streets with their grandmother, whether they ever had their own home or even their own bed. Even their age is unknown. The documents from social services say the twins are 7 years old. They themselves claim to be 11.
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.
