"Face to Face With a Mother’s Pain"
Nicholas Kristof reports on the sense of anguish and helplessness felt by Saumya Dave (one of the winners of his "win-a-trip" contest) when she encounters a pregnant woman who has a severe leg infection and has not eaten in over a day. HKI helped this woman recieve the food and medical care she needed.
Kristof writes about solutions that could have averted this woman's plight, including our homestead food production program.
"[The program] shows village women how to grow gardens of high-nutrition vegetables. These gardens create a safety net and ensure that babies get vitamin A and other nutrients."
