Orphans

My Vote for Mother of the Year

The Story of the Woman with 14 Orphans

14  zambian orphans of Dorothy Bwalya
Dorothy Bwalya was a Franciscan Sister in Zambia for 18 years. Internal politics drove her away and when she quit, her family disowned and shunned her. Years later, her siblings began to die of AIDS and other causes and Dorothy began to take in the orphans.
With very little income as a teacher at a vocational school, she has tried to provide for them, but with 14 now, many of them with health problems, it has become impossible.
I am going to write her story in the days leading up to Mother’s Day hoping that some of you out there will recognize her hero Mother status and help me raise money for her to rent a house with more than 2 rooms and eventually become an accredited orphanage.
Stay tuned.
