The family of the late Sylvia Senzeni Chaguma has thanked all who stood by them and helped with funeral expenses.
Sylvia Senzeni Chaguma also known as Lady Sil, was the founder and CEO of Daily Hope Foundation charity.
She died on 20th March 2014 in Accra, Ghana where she had gone to visit the orphans and vulnerable children she used to support.
Lady Sil was laid to rest on 11th April 2014 in Mutare, Zimbabwe. “The burial went well and she is now resting in peace,” said Bekezela Nsingo, Founder & CEO of African Mothers Foundation International (AMFI).
“We want to thank each and every one of mum’s friends who stood by us and supported the family in various ways,” Lady Sil’s family said in a statement. “The Cardiff community and entire UK community from various backgrounds contributed immensely in many various forms.”
The family further thanked all who all contributed money and made it possible for Lady Sil’s body to be repatriated from Ghana, and “the women who took it in turns to go and see, sleep and cook for the children.”
They also thanked who “came to pray and conduct church services at the house,” and those who “bought food and household goods i.e. fridges for the children.”
The family is also grateful to who tolerated them when they “rang them day and night asking for advice and guidance.”
They’d also like to thank the women who supported the children with schooling and contacts with the statutory services.
“The whole family is very grateful and humbled by such kindness from everyone who stood with us in this difficult time. We continue to see your kindness and love as people still support the orphaned children. Please continue to do the wonderful work. Thank you and may the lord bless you all in abundance,” said Lady Sil’s family.
