The two brothers, Michelet, 9, and Machelet, 8, clung to each other along the edge of a steep rocky mountain path in Haiti. They had been abandoned by all of their loved ones and left alone to die.
Michelet was so malnourished he couldn’t walk. Machelet suffered severe pain from bloating due to kwashiorkor (an excruciating form of malnutrition). They just sat by the road, hoping someone might help.
