kathaIn Memory of Katharina Wunsch 

(06.12.1985 - 29.01.2010)  

Katha, one of our first volunteers, and thus an original kuku (literally 'chicken' in Swahili - as all of our volunteers are now lovingly referred to) entered our lives in the summer of 2005. After graduating from high school, she joined Lena, Kathrin and Tini on our annual trip to the Starehe Children's Home. Having fallen deeply in love with the children, Katha returned from that first trip to Tanzania deciding to devote her time to help realise our dream of building the kids a nursery school. In 2009, Masomo members honoured her unfailing commitment and financial savvy by electing Katha as their treasurer. Shortly after returning from another summer in Tanzania in 2009, Katha was diagnosed with leukemia. She fought her illness with dignity and optimism until the day she lost her battle on January 29th, 2010. Katha, we will think of you always.
