The pig breeding project you have supported has been an essential part of poverty relief in Haiti. In Haiti, pigs are like bank accounts. Haitians buy small piglets and breed them. Haitian pigs root in the ground and eat plants growing in the wild. Once a fattened pig is ready for market, families sell them and are able to use the proceeds to feed their families, send their children to school, or obtain health care.
Thanks to pigs that you have purchased, rural peasants have been able to provide for their families. These communities need your continued support. Help replenish local communities' stock of pigs and provide them with the opportunity to achieve sustainable incomes. Purchase a pig for a rural family in Haiti today.
