CHILDFUND INTERNATIONAL – HEADQUARTERED IN RICHMOND, VA USA
EMMANUEL AND SIANI FAMILY
Amy began her support of ChildFund International in 2009 when she became the “sponsor” of Emmanuel, a then
5-year-old little boy in Zambia. Amy developed a very close bond with Emmanuel through their regular exchange of photographs and letters. The entire Bell family was very familiar with Amy’s love of Emmanuel and his family. She kept a current photo of Emmanuel on her desk for all to see and gave us routine updates on his well-being. When Amy passed away in 2014 we learned that Amy had made specific
provisions in her will for the continuing support of Emmanuel, his family, and his community in the event of her passing.
Upon Amy’s passing the Bell family took over the role of being Amy’s ChildFund sponsor for Emmanuel and has worked to carry out her wishes for the support of Emmanuel, his family, and his community of Nyashishi.
Amy personally through her will and subsequently, Amy Bell Charities, has funded and supports the Nyashishi School for Emmanuel’s community. This includes not only a new school building but also teacher housing and a new upper level school block for the community. Amy’s gift is changing lives in Zambia for Emmanuel and his community through life giving education.
WATER FOR LIFE PROJECT
Amy Bell Charities has also funded a major water well project in Nyashishi to provide a reliable and plentiful supply of safe drinking water for Emmanuel’s entire community.
