Falesi Mbewe’s heartache in life has led her to be a woman of compassion. Falesi has lived a life as a wife of a polygamous husband. (Interestingly enough, the other wife is also a member of the RecycloCraftz project). Three of her eight children have passed away, now Falesi at 68, cares for eight orphans on her own—five of which are in secondary school.
Falesi says Recyclocraftz has greatly helped her. She first heard about the program from her younger sister. Falesi is now able to buy food herself as well as afford books and pencils for her children. She is no longer dependent on others.
Falesi would appreciate prayer for the orphaned children she cares for. Some of their parents neglect and mistreat them which is why Falesi takes care of them; she prays that they will do well in their studies. Falesi would like to encourage people in the States to keep supporting Recyclocraftz because the funds from the creations go such a long way in meeting basic needs of those in Zambia.
