Loving this sweet photo from photographer, @lauraelizabethpohl #repost . . . . I wasn''t looking forward to my meningitis vaccination last week. I''m no fan of needles, but I don''t make a big fuss about it; I''m lucky to have healthcare access. The nurse used a retractable needle -- which I''d never seen before -- and as I turned my head away and waited for her to start, she told me she was done. It was painless! I was happy. ...

A few seconds after the photo, this baby cried his head off.

It''s back-to-school time. But proposed cuts to the federal budget could threaten the futures of many children who depend on foreign aid. In Benin, children in the @usdagov McGovern-Dole Food for Education program receive a free, nutritious meal when they come to school. For some, it is often the one and only meal of their day.

Nga (far right) feeds her children Trang and Kiet. Nga lived her whole life trying to support her mother who lost her leg to a landmine. In second grade, she had to drop out school to raise chickens to support her and her mother. Now as a mother, Nga is glad to receive support from CRS to help raise pigs and earn income to support her family.

Le Houng lives in Central Vietnam. As the breadwinner for his three children and elderly mother, Le has a lot on his plate. Sometimes it''s really hard. As a survivor of a landmine many years ago, Le has struggled with his physically demanding job. But he doesn''t despair for long. With the help of a CRS-trained community-based worker, Le is learning how to manage challenges with pyscho-social support. This includes financial support and rehabilitation for the survivors of landmines.
