Recently we received some sad news from our Disabilities Affairs Manager, Jonah.
He wrote, ‘This is to inform you that Connet, whom HHIUK supported for more than 6 years in the areas of medical and economic support, died yesterday and burial is taking place today in Mbeza, Namwala District.’
For those who remember Connet, you may recall that he had large tumours growing on his face and head. HHI(UK) had sent him to South Africa, some years ago, for treatment and surgery.
He had, more recently, been interviewed by Zambian Television and funds had been raised, once doctors realised his terrible plight, to send him to India where surgeons had offered him similar treatment, if he could get there.
Unfortunately, in spite of the surgery and the treatment, the tumours grew back, and became worse. He is now ‘with the Lord’, and better than he’s ever been.
We extend our gratitude to our loyal HHI supporters who give hope and help to those who, like Connet, are desperately ill.
We also send our sympathy and Christian love to Connet’s family and ask that you will remember them in your prayers.
