    Alice of Zambia


      My name is Alice Shumba. My husband Norberto and I have been married for 25 years. He works for Zambia Telecommunications Company as Principle Telecomms Officer. We have 6 children: 5 boys and 1 girl.

      I joined the Kabwata Home Based Care Project in January 1998, because I wanted to serve the under-privileged, especially those who are sick. At the time I joined the number of patients was very high and many of them were infected with HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis. As a volunteer caregiver, I was appointed Project Coordinator, a post I still hold.

      As we went into homes taking care of the sick, we discovered another need. This was the plight of orphans left behind after the death of their parents, which we knew had to be addressed. We started caring for orphans although we did not have any financial support at the time. Our care consisted mainly of listening to them, acknowledging their difficulties and sharing our love. In 2003, I became one of the Zambian Directors for Sobornost for the World Foundation and began co-managing our program for children orphaned by AIDS. The program, which provides food rations as well as funds to meet educational and medical needs, is doing wonders for the 50 orphans currently being served.

    Rogers of Kenya


      My name is Rogers Nyaberi Osoro. I am 25 years old and I am an AIDS orphan. My father died when I was 12 years old and my mother died when I was 14. When my mother died, I was in standard 8 (grade 8), and that was the end of my formal education because their was nobody to pay for my school fees.

      I was the head of my family of three at the age of fourteen. We lived alone at my parents rented house for a year, and then we were separated and sent to live with different relatives. This proved very unsatisfactory and the three of us decided to return to our parents homestead and live on our own; farming a small piece of land which our father owned. My brothers continued with schooling and I farmed the land to get the food for the three of us.

      I took odd jobs to help support the family, and while working on one of these jobs I met my wife Grace. We were married on September 18th, 2004 in a Catholic Church ceremony when we were both 22 years old. We now have two children and also care for my wife's niece.

      In addition to farming I am a mason and a part-time driver. I assist in the Bismarck North Dakota Kenya Mission for AIDS Orphans, and I am the Director for Sobornost Orphans Assistance in Raganga (SOAR) and related projects.

    Luka of Zambia


      My name is Luka Mukuka and I am married with 3 children, 2 boys and a girl. My wife, Elizabeth, works for the National Broadcaster as an Electronics Technician. Currently, I am working in our parish, Good Shepherd Catholic Church as Parish Secretary.

      I worked in the Air Force as a Meteorological Assistant for 26 years. When I retired from the Air Force, I studied spiritual direction and I am now actively involved in giving individually guided retreats in parishes in the Archdiocese of Lusaka and the Mouze Diocese. For the past 5 years, I have been a member of the Home-based Care Project at our parish in Kabwata. As a volunteer caregiver I work with orphans whose parents died of AIDS, of which there are many in our community.

      As one of the Zambian Directors for Sobornost for the World Foundation, I co-manage our program for children orphaned by AIDS. The program started with 9 orphaned children as beneficiaries in 2003, and now we are caring for 50 orphans. The program provides them with food rations and medical care, and pays their school fees. The HIV/AIDS pandemic has left so many orphans in our country that we are faced with the danger of raising a generation of illiterate, undernourished street children. By the grace of the Lord I have a heart and a small role to play in the midst of all this suffering.
