Covenant Christian School in Harrisburg, PA raised funds to purchase three goats and a veterinary kit for children in Zimbabwe. While the kids had the option to pay a dollar in order to wear jeans to school one day, many chose to donate much more and they surpassed their goal!
Here's a note received from Mr. Khumalo, who presented three pregnant female goats to two boys and the veterinary kit to a veterinary assistant trained in by our program. "The goats were given to the orphans, Gabriel, a boy aged sixteen and his brother, Gibon, aged twelve. They come from Sizeze village. Their mother died in 2005 and they are currently staying with their sickly and unemployed father. The boys say, "it is great to know that there are children who care about us who can go an extra mile to an extent of giving us the life-changing gift of goats. We can't wait to have our own herd and to always have milk to drink".
The veterinary kit was presented to Yekelani Ncube, a trained veterinary assistant who is working hard to assist orphan families. He also comes from Sizeze.
Thank you for making donation that affect children like Gabriel and Gibon - you are changing their lives and giving them a future.
