Grandson Matiya, Horasi, Beverly Kubik


This is Emanuel Horasi Siyono who lives near Mufumbwe in remote western Zambia. Everyone calls him “Horasi.” We visited with him from April 25-28, 2014. He is 74 years old.

About two years ago when we were in Lusaka, more than 500 miles away we had this foldable wheelchair made for him. It gives him a whole new world as he’s able to be mobile. He’s a brave man who often takes the bus as he sits on the side of the road in his wheelchair and waits to be taken out and the wheelchair folded up. He often has his 14 year-old grandson Matiya go with him and help him get around. http://lifenets.org/wheelchair
