Gifts from Extended Family in Distant Lands

By Michelle Miller | Finance Director


Eliah is an 86 year old grandmother caring for 10 year old Thandweyinkosi and 3 year old Nkosilindile.  This small family has benefited from our goat program.  Eliah shares her words of appreciation ...

"I am comforted by this support I am getting form the people who are not my blood relatives.  Their acts are healing the wounds that I and my grandchildren have been nursing for so long.  They are now part of our family and their support has given us hope for the future.  We received three goats from this extended family of ours in distant lands.  Presently, we have six goats and one of them is pregnant.  We are getting milk daily from the goats.  We enjoy the milk and my three year old grandchild even drinks it fresh just after milking."

This story of hope and appreciation is made possible because of friends like you.  Your donation to our goat project makes you part of Eliah's "extended family in distand lands".  As you share the holidays with friends and family during this joyous season, take a moment to remember Eliah and her grandchildren.  No matter how far away they may seem, you have made a difference for the future.
