Making a new home, a new life for Moses

Photos courtosy of Karen Cooper. Thank you so much for your time.

Making a new home, a new life for Moses I read an article from Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota written by Maria Elena Baca. Social worker Karen Cooper saw the smile of a Nigerian boy that was living in an orphanage. She was told the boy was dying and it turns out that he was malnourished. Moses was abandoned in Kafanchan. Until recently, Moses lived in a dirt steel crib. He has had little contact with the outside world due to the fear of the unknown where as his condition is concerned. It is likely that Moses has cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills. It can lead to vision loss, hearing loss, speech problems, and learning disibilities. This child needs help getting to a doctor. Moses needs a doctor that can help him out. Please go visit Karen Cooper’s site shown on the bottom.

Karen Cooper is raising $10,000 to bring Moses to Minnesota for treatment.

  1. Karen Cooper emailed me and this is what she had to say:

    Good morning, Shirley. I just wanted to thank you for spreading the word about Moses and the Hope For Moses Fund mission. It is people like you who really make a difference in our world. Your web site is great. I read some of the blogs (and tried to reply but was unable). I changed the web site info to address some of the concerns your friends had.
    I wish you the best, and thanks again for your support!
    With gratitude,
    Karen Cooper
