We call him Koromo because we cannot pronounce his name.  His Maasai mom died at his birth.  He is very small but doing well.  He is from a village near Maria’s village where so many moms die in childbirth.  There are 6 million Maasai and with so little medical care within a close distance to most villages these poor moms must try to make it in to the hospital on a motorcycle.  I can’t even begin to imagine that.   Our Save The Mothers program is making a difference in the maternal death rate of Maasai moms in childbirth.

Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
