With the eggs that my hens provide, I can first feed my children better and also improve their nutrition and their performance in school.
Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
Alieta Quespia, 13-years-old, along with her four sisters and five brothers, often doesn’t have enough food each day to keep her full and able to focus in school. While her parents, Eugenio and Olimpia work hard on their farm in Bolivia—their resources are few. They are often unable to earn income large enough to sustain their family at a healthy standard.
With Food for the Hungry (FH)’s Easter Gift Catalog—that is available online—it’s now easy to help families, like the Quespias. The catalog provides an easy way to choose from more than 30 gifts such as: goats, chickens and dairy cows to help impoverished families earn a stable livelihood.
Because three of the Quespia children are sponsored through FH, the family qualified for the agriculture program. In order to help the family establish more reliable income, FH gave the family several chickens to raise. The family learned how to raise poultry, including how to build their own chicken coops.
“With the eggs that my hens provide, I can first feed my children better and also improve their nutrition and their performance in school,” said Eugenio. “My goal is to provide other foods with my income from the sale of the eggs, so I can provide well-balanced meals.”
Through this online catalog, FH is directing gifts to almost 17,000 households in 18 different countries. Goats, chickens, pigs, dairy cows and more are available to change a family’s life and help end malnutrition for children, like those of the Quespia family.
