AVRF Embraces Diversity & Inclusion
It is with deep sorrow that we share the unexpected passing of Faith Chalula Mufaya on November 20, 2022, at 14 years old. Born on September 27, 2008, Faith brought joy and love as a cherished daughter and sister.
Faith’s infectious smile and passion for teaching defined her early years. Despite facing challenges, including vitiligo, she remained resilient, finding solace in singing and helping her mother sell fritters. Faith’s maturity beyond her years endeared her to adults, yet she valued the friendships she cultivated.
Faith’s passing leaves an irreplaceable void. Her sweet nature, boundless love, and infectious joy will be deeply missed. Our thoughts are with her family as they navigate this profound loss.
May Faith Chalula Mufaya’s soul rest in eternal peace.
