Cabrini Eswatini recently celebrated the transitioning of over 200 children, orphaned by the HIV/AIDS epidemic from care provided over 17 years by the Sisters and staff through childhood and education into adult lives, homes, careers and families of their own.
Celemusa was just 6 when he and his siblings began life at Cabrini’s Hostel after both his parents died. He was a dedicated student and after completing his Nursing Degree with excellent results he has recently been awarded a Mandela Rhodes Foundation Scholarship to study Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing in South Africa. He aims to keep giving to others the practical, holistic, abundant love that he received as a child. This work was supported by valued partners including Cabrini Foundation Australia and Solon Foundation.
When asked what Cabrini is to him he said “I was hungry and you fed me. I was thirsty and you gave me water to drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me into your homes, into Cabrini. They must continue helping the poor as they are not doing it for themselves, but they have been sent by God.”
