Sr Lenah Mambo ibvm
Sister Lenah Mambo ibvm will be remembered fondly by the people of Lukulu in Zambia. Sr Lenah arrived from Kenya in May 2016 and died of COVID-19 in May 2021. In her five years, she reached out to many. The people at the parish leprosarium had a special place in Sr Lenah’s heart. Her visits were the highlight of their week. She was a very committed teacher at St. Columba’s Secondary School, and results in the national biology exams improved significantly throughout her time there. She worked tirelessly in her coordination of the Christian religious program offered, and she supported the Catholic ethos of the school in many different creative ways. She was very aware of student needs, especially those struggling with poverty. When the school feeding program looked like collapsing due to a lack of funds, she sourced funds through MWIA – an example of her constant desire to help those in need.
