Veronika is at Kasisi with her sisters Catherine and Annie. They were brought to Kasisi by their father due to a volatile family situation. The girls adjusted to their now home well. Veronika is always smiling. She is humble, resourceful and incredibly honest. She looks after her sisters and has good relationships with all residents of Kasisi.
Veronica has come to visit Kasisi for two weeks. She goes to boarding school and she is in the 12th grade. Being away from her sisters Anna and Catherine is always difficult for her, but she knows that a good education is essential.
Veronica has always seemed exceptionally mature and ambitious. When she is not looking after the other children in Edmund's House, she is making plans for her future.
The girl is an avid reader, and not only fiction of fiction. She really wants to be a doctor in the future, so she studies maths and biology diligently - some of the most difficult subjects at school. She is a very ambitious child!
Veronica is interested in Poland, so from time to time she asks us, "What is it like to study in Poland? - Is life in Poland very different from life in Zambia?" Who knows, maybe she will follow in James and Eva's footsteps and become our next doctor?
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.
