Sticks for Milk
Paying back what they can
This group of nuns makes milk from soy beans to help children get protein and other vital nutrients. The children will come once a day with old water bottles or other used plastic soda bottles to take their soy milk for the day. They don’t have any way to pay the nuns back for the soy milk, so on their way from their homes they find sticks in the forest and bring them to the nuns to provide some form of payment. It melts your heart to see the children bringing sticks to thank the nuns for making soy milk and to make sure that the nuns never run out of cooking wood!
