Apart from the salary of her now dead husband the widow of the security guard had no other income. Her outlook without her husband’s salary would be bleak and she would be unable to continue sending their youngest son, Philomon, aged 16, to school. The cost of sending him to school is K985,000 which is about £130 pounds per annum. Romilly will provide this until he leaves school. Christopher Mulenga of FOSC, which runs the rehabilitation centre, says that with a small grant or loan of £164 Mrs Chilufya would be able to start a business, and provided that this is what she wants to do, Romilly will provide the £164.
Thank you very much to Romilly’s supporters for making this possible.
