It was 17 years ago that Wendy Liswan arrived at the Kabwata Orphanage and Transit Centre, arriving there when it first opened as her grandmother was unable to provide for her and her siblings with her meager earnings from her small business.
“So eventually we would go without food,” Wendy told us.
But upon her arrival at the Kabwata orphanage in Zambia, she was sponsored academically and provided with all the necessities of life.
“My life changed because I met people who gave me love, care and support,” she said.
During the course of the next decade, Wendy completed her secondary school education, went to college and earned a degree in office management and then got a job as a customer care clerk at a bank in Lusaka.
We at Bread and Water for Africa® are so pleased to be able to report that Wendy, who is now 25 years old and a happy and successful member of society, is engaged to be married in December. We offer our hearty congratulates to Wendy and her fiancée, and wish them all the luck in the world.
And Wendy will never forget for her entire life who made this all possible for her, the supporters of Bread and Water for Africa®.
“I will be forever grateful,” she says. “God will always remember whatever you have put in my life and that of the orphanage. May God richly bless you!”
