Help build the Community Health Clinic in the Kilung Shedra
This little girl was famous for her “Big Belly” in the community. She was once starving near death, but no one was aware of it.
Her family caught Tuberculosis two years ago, after they gave up their nomad life and moved to town to send their oldest girl to school. During the TB treatment, her mom became pregnant. She decided to stop the medication and save the baby. After the baby was born, she was sent to live with her grandparents, to avoid getting TB transmitted to her. From day 1, she was fed by yak milk.
