Saving Moses (R) Hunger Strike Raises Funds to Feed At Risk Babies and Toddlers

An ongoing fundraising project that was started December, 2018, seeks to raise funds to help malnourished babies and toddlers in the Congo and Angola.

Shallowater, United States - May 16, 2019 /PressCable/ —

TipsforTrips is releasing information about Saving Moses(R), a global humanitarian organization that helps babies and toddlers around the world where the need is most urgent and the care is least available.

While many travelers explore the world for business and to expand their horizons, there are also groups that travel for the purpose of doing charitable missions. Saving Moses(R) is one of those groups.

The name goes back to Moses, who was saved out of the Nile River by Pharaoh’s daughter. He was a three month old baby at the time. That age is similar to the ages of the children with which the current Saving Moses(R) organization works. Moses went on to become a great leader who freed a slave people and later received a body of law that has been part of foundation of law for western civilization.

Saving Moses(R) runs malnutrition clinics in the Congo and Angola. The doctors who have been there for ten and twenty years have never seen so many babies and toddlers in such dire conditions. That situation has led to the current Saving Moses(R) Hunger Strike, a fundraising effort, which began in the Christmas season, 2018, and which is continuing to raise funds to counter the great need.

A video of some history of the region plus information about the organization’s work is available here.

One of the young boys helped by Saving Moses(R) had this to say. “When I was a baby I almost died. That is pretty normal where I am from. Malnutrition is a big problem in the world. It kills a lot of baby and toddlers. But not me. A Saving Moses(R) hero saved my life. You can be a Saving Moses(R) hero for one of my friends.”

At the time of this writing, $38 feeds a baby for an entire month. While any gift is helpful, what they are hoping for is to find consistent partners who month after month who will commit to helping a child or children on a regular monthly basis. This is an opportunity for those groups that are looking for a project that makes a real difference in the world. More information is available at the website.

NEW YORK — Shareholders are still voting overwhelmingly in favor of big pay packages for CEOs, but there are more pockets of resistance eight years after "Say on Pay" became a mandatory exercise at annual meetings. Median pay for CEOs at the biggest U.S. companies climbed 7% to $12 million last year, according to data analyzed by Equilar for The Associated Press. The median increase for a typical worker at these companies was 3%. Median means half were larger, and half were smaller. The stock market is in the midst of the longest bull run on record.

Missouri governor signs bill banning abortions at 8 weeks

May 25, 2019

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri Gov. Mike Parson on Friday signed a bill that bans abortions on or beyond the eighth week of pregnancy without exceptions for cases of rape or incest, making it among the most restrictive abortion policies in the nation. Under the law that comes into force Aug. 28, doctors who violate the eight-week cutoff could face five to 15 years in prison. Women who terminate their pregnancies cannot be prosecuted. A legal challenge is expected, although it's unclear when that might occur. The measure includes exceptions for medical emergencies, such as when there is a risk...

US orders for long-lasting goods fall 2.1% in April

May 25, 2019

WASHINGTON — Orders to U.S. factories for large manufactured goods fell sharply last month, pulled down by lower demand for commercial aircraft and cars, while businesses also pulled back on investment spending. The Commerce Department said Friday that orders for durable goods — or items meant to last at least three years — fell 2.1%, after rising 1.7% in March, which was revised lower from a previous estimate of a 2.6% gain. Orders also fell steeply in February. The report prompted numerous economists to take a more bearish view of the economy in the April-June quarter. Michael Feroli, an economist...

CEOs get $800,000 pay raise, leaving workers further behind

May 25, 2019

NEW YORK — Did you get a 7% raise last year? Congratulations, yours was in line with what CEOs at the biggest companies got. But for chief executives, that 7% was roughly $800,000. Pay for CEOs at S&P 500 companies rose to a median of $12 million last year, including salary, stock and other compensation, according to data analyzed by Equilar for The Associated Press.

HHS rolls back protections for transgender people

May 25, 2019

WASHINGTON — A new Trump administration rule would roll back sex discrimination protection for transgender people in health services. In the proposed rule issued Friday, the Health and Human Services Department says laws banning sex discrimination in health care don't apply to people's "gender identity." LGBT groups have long warned such a move could lead to denial of needed medical care. That rule reverses the policy of the Obama administration, which had found that sex discrimination laws do protect transgender people. It faces a 60-day comment period and court challenges are expected. Under the Obama-era rule, a hospital could be...
