Every dollar raised goes toward improving the lives of the Sunflower Orphans, and the villagers of Mulungushi Agro. Mission Possible A to Z projects are not a one-time handout and all of our projects are sustainable, environmentally responsible, and designed to foster economic growth and development. We are respectful of the Zambia culture and their ideas, and share with them, the dream of a better tomorrow for their children.
We have chosen to work primarily at the Sunflower Orphanage because of the dedication and love of Fr. Pierre Ruquoy. From the funds we are able to raise, Fr. Pierre is able to multiply and sustains what was given. Fr. Pierre is our “man on the scene”, keeping us continually informed of the development of our on-going projects, needs, and successes. As we seek new resources and partners, he works closely with his network of supporters in Belgium and ties to diplomatic channels. He shares long terms goals, and a clear vision of what is best, not only for the orphanage, but also for the surrounding villages. With these goals and visions, we have decided to extend our reach into developing the community of the villages.
“The villagers of Kamushanga Kabwe, Zambia taught me that true, eternal happiness is found in God and God alone and to avoid the trappings of our American culture. I was overwhelmed by the melodious, ceremonial welcome our fellow brothers and sisters gave us the moment we arrived! I found a renewed sense of faith from the way the St. Veronica parishioners passionately sang, worshiped with zest, and praised God with all of their heart, mind and soul! Choose joy! It was an honor to meet the Sisters of Mother Teresa of Calcutta’s Order, Missionaries of Charity, who tenderly cared for the babies at the House of Joy. Their unceasing devotion for these children was powerful to witness and reinforced to all of us; our daily dependency for love and understanding from our Lord and Savior. As sophisticated as our civilization has become in most of the world- a primitive Zambian vantage point is an ancestral reminder that we are all called by God to love and to be loved no matter where we find ourselves on this beautiful planet.”

“It was an honor and privilege to spend time in Zambia with beautiful and loving Zambians.
It was a special joy attending Mass with exuberance not known locally. Will never forget the chicken carried by Dorene for the Offering. Oh, the enthusiasm members had for Mass. We were treated to meals by wonderful sharing ladies of the village. Many special connections were made with friendly people. And, oh, the children who performed a special greeting for us and surrounded us with excited expressions. An experience never to be forgotten.”

“Zambia to me, is like no other place in the world. I can still feel the instant warmth I felt when first meeting the people in Zambia. Things that touched me the most is the sense of community. The saying “It takes a village to raise a child” holds true in Zambia. They help one another. They love one another. The respect one another. A little girl by the name of Elizabeth captured my heart. She sat on my lap during mass; we hugged and played together the following days. Her innocence, her laugh, and her presence belessed me more than she will probably ever know.”
