Which comes next, the chicken or the egg?

Thank you all for your donations and especially Tilly Lavenas with her matching fund. This only lasts for a couple more weeks, so if anyone is nearly there, a donation now will be doubled! This scheme has gone incredibly well in 2007, with almost 100 elderly receiving the basic foods every three months, which include rice, beans, oils, pastas, soaps, sugar, salt etc. We are seeing some differences with the children too, which we hoped, whereby the children can now receive the food that may have gone to the old people within the family. During next year, we are introducing a chicken scheme, where each family will receive two egg-laying chickens, with the deal being that they must provide into the Old People's Plan, eggs and a chicken over the course of the year, to make it more sustainable.

Another successful meeting, all are happy with the aid

    coleen I am happy to hear that the organization is able to feed ~100 elderly as well as the nearby children. It is wonderful that the elderly are not forgotten. It is my hope that the organization will assist more elderly in need.
