Zikhona & Paru

Artist Blog by Angelika Kollin

I wholeheartedly believe that love is the fundamental force that gives meaning to everything around us. It can take on a multitude of forms, from the gentle touch between a parent and child to the fiery passion between lovers. Love is always present - filling the emptiness between objects, creating connections and ultimately reconnecting us with our Self.

For it is through love that we find our deepest connections and discover the true essence of who we are.

Being the only breadwinner providing for two kids is not a small challenge in South Africa. When little Paru lost his mommy to domestic violence, his youngest aunt Zikhona adopted him and his older sister without hesitation. Little Paru, scarred by a devastating fire that had ravaged his tiny body when he was just two months old, requires extensive medical care and specialized daily care. What Zikhona is doing while putting her dreams and goals on hold is an incredibly inspiring act of unwavering love and steadfast courage. She chose what was right and not what was easy - in the true essence of humanity.
