When Moses got milk

Post Summary: 

Our writer/photographer team Kari and Jon are in Rwanda this week! On Tuesday, they met 11-year-old Moses, an orphan who was brought back from the brink of death by milk.

See how cows and a pay-it-forward spirit are helping to transform Rwandan communities and young lives.

On Tuesday, I met the most incredible boy, a boy who shouldn’t be alive to tell his story. His name is Moses.

Moses lives in southern Rwanda, in a place with the highest level of malnutrition in the entire country. 

Nearly half—45 percent of all children who live here—are stunted.

Moses was hungry—so hungry that he did the unthinkable: He tried to suckle the milk from goats.
