"He is one of those rare children I meet where there is really very little hope."

In 2009 when our photographer Phill met 8-year-old Moses in Kenya, he was skin and bone, and had stopped even asking for food.

After six months of vitamin-enriched porridge and regular healthcare provided by ChildFund, Moses was an entirely different boy - the images below reveal just how much. The first image was taken in May 2009, the second image is from November 2009 and the third image is February 2016.

Moses is now 16, healthy, attends school and loves playing football with his friends, proving anything is possible if someone cares enough.

A life saved and transformed by kind caring Kiwis! Thank you!
