Sustainable Food is Happening!

Day by day things are changing in Zimbabwe. While a difficult government is still in place, hope is seen in different sections of the country. One of the exciting ones is the fact that children are now being set up to be self-reliant, with sustainable food sources, thanks to you.

While you have been helping provide for the food needs of children, we've been hard at work donating goats, chickens and seeds so that children learn how to grow and maintain flocks of animals and vegetable gardens. The eggs and milk produced by their animals is of immediate relief for those who've been malnourished for too long. In fact, all the children in every one of the sustainability projects we've embarked on in Zimbabwe has gained weight and is now considered to be in the healthy weight zone. How exciting is that?

Check out the attached photos of some of the food we sent, along with a photo of one of our chicken beneficiaries (David is a head of household at 15 years of age).

During this holiday season I wish you all the best and much joy in your own lives,
