Ten vulnerable families from our Neema site in Tanzania deeply appreciate the recent gift of their very own rooster and laying hens! The children in these families are lovingly cared for by elderly grandmothers and mothers with chronic illness who are unable to work. Each family’s new feathered friends brought them immediate relief. The hens provided nutritious eggs to supplement the children’s diets, and soon, began to produce new chicks that quickly grew. Excess eggs and surplus chickens were sold to neighbours, which gave the families extra funds to buy other much-needed items such as groceries, clothes, and medicine.
The children squealed with delight when they first saw their new chickens, and were eager to learn how to care for them. Soon, they were all expert egg collectors!
“Jesus Christ is our hope,” writes the families in their combined thank you letter. “We send greetings of love and prayers. We have already seen many changes in our family and through the community! We thank you and thank God for the help we have received.”
