See how Kobby is thriving

Kobby is thriving!
Kobby is thriving!

When Kobby was about 2-years-old he lost both parents. His grandmother, in her 70s and living in Worapong, took responsibility of raising him.

The Self-Help International staff knows Kobby's grandmother who is in the micro-credit program. Realizing her constraints due to age and the great needs of Kobby who appeared undernourished, Self-Help staff members felt they should extend assistance to her plight by providing Quality Protein Maize porridge and other nutrients. As you can see from the photo, Kobby, now three-and-a-half, is thriving and his grandmother is extremely grateful for the assistance to keep her grandson healthy.

On a normal basis our feeding program benefits groups of children, but in some cases when children are found in extreme conditions, Self-Help International will offer one-on-one assistance.

Self-Help was certain our donors through Global Giving would understand this unique situation. It is because of your endless support that we are able to help children like Kobby.
