The tears roll down Charity Bohoto's face as she thinks about the past. Her children were malnourished, their growth stunted by the lack of nutrition. Life was a struggle — until she and her husband Vincent received a cow from Heifer International. Thinking of it now, a smile begins to shine across her tear-streaked face.
Charity says Sharing and Caring is her favorite of the 12 Cornerstones. “Someone prepared and supported me to come out of poverty,” she says. “I need to help others and care for them.”
"When I was in trouble," she says, "Heifer pulled me out."
