Moses Cole became orphaned by the Liberian Civil War at the tender age of five years old. He was welcomed into the CCH Orphanage on December 26, 2008 by Momma Neyor and Papa Fungbeh. As Moses grew up, they became aware of the severe eardrum damage he suffered during the conflict. Now in his early 20’s, Moses is a humble, intelligent young man who enjoys reading and makes friends with everyone he meets.
In 2019, the CCH family was reconnected Dr. Rastani F.A.C.S., a physician in California who had previously worked on Moses ears in 2014. Dr. Rastani generously agreed to treat Moses again.
In December 2019, Moses flew from Liberia to America with Q to undergo surgery for his hearing. Due to COVID-19, his surgery was canceled at the last minute. Since then Moses has been living with Q’s family, awaiting an opportunity to have his hearing repaired. He has become a big brother to Q’s children, and a beloved member of the family. His aspiration is to be an entrepreneur in the cold storage business in Liberia, where the lack of storage for food staples such as fish contributes to food insecurity. Moses’ passion is to give back to his community and create job opportunities for the other children he grew up with at CCH.
The Save More Kids team would like to express our immense gratitude to Dr. Rastani. We also wish to show our deep appreciation to Kelly Steckelberg and Lorenzo Logoreci. Kelly and Lorenzo became pen pals with Moses and visited Liberia in 2012, they are his number one fans! Without their support, Moses would not have the opportunity to receive this critical procedure.
