One year ago this month, college student Tia Landrum of Shreveport encountered a life altering situation while on an internship in Ghana. She saw an emaciated girl who was lying helpless in a marketplace, and exposed to the West African sun.

“She weighed a little over 17 kilograms (37 pounds) when we picked her up, and she was about five feet tall," Landrum said.
