It is run by Brother John Kennedy Oronjo, a member of the Catholic religious order known as the Brothers of St. Charles Lwanga. Chalice, in partnership with a Nova Scotia Community Group alled "Inverness County Cares", provides financial support to the St. Charles Lwanga project.
The school is mourning the recent death of Stanley, a very hardworking boy who came to the centre from the slums of Nairobi. He is the son of a single mother of three children and he was 14 years old at the time of his death on Marh 17th. Stanley had a number of medical issues, including kidney related anemia and congenital heart disease. He became ill while visiting a guardian during school break on the 17th and was rushed to the hospital. Dialysis was required, but due to a doctors' strike, he was not given immediate attention and passed away the same day.
The family of Stanley has no means to pay any of the outstanding bills for hospital costs or for funeral expenses. Brother Oronjo has come to Chalice and Inverness County Cares to pay for these costs, which total $1480.
