A Christmas miracle
In December 2008 Noluvuyo sang with the choir during our Christmas show. She was a sweet and loving girl, who was suffering the
ravages of cancer. Noluvuyo died in August having lived a life knowing she was loved. Noluvuyo is now transformed from a life of bodily pain to a
higher calling with the Lord.
We know that death is an integral part of living. Our time on earth is not measured by how long one lives, but rather by the quality of
one’s life. Noluvuyo enjoyed her childhood and she left us in a state of grace.
Noluvuyo participated in life affirming activities, receiving love and respect from her family, from the little patients that lived in her ward,
from the staff, who cared for her, and from the support and prayers of the Pallottine Sisters. Noluvuyo’s suffering may have been unknown to many,
but she was never invisible!
Her transition from this life was made as comfortable, and as joyful as possible. We are proud of Noluvuyo and glad
for the difference we were able to make in her life, but we are most grateful for the difference she made in our lives.
Christmas is a time of new beginnings. We do not struggle with the mysteries of death, we have our faith and remain affirmed that
Noluvuyo is on a path to a new beginning.
May God bless Noluvuyo and may the Lord keep all his children in an embrace of love. We are proud to honour Noluvuyo as our miracle child.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
We are grateful for the support from DG Murray Trust, from the Joan St. Leger Lindbergh Charitable Trust, and
from the Soroptimist Society, Cape of Good Hope for providing the needed funding to renovate the Sunflower Medical
We still have four more medical wards that need your help. With your help we can make it happen.
