Melissa Zalwango in Uganda loves to take care of her parents’ cow and calf. Her mother Annet has seen a huge improvement in the family’s life since they received livestock from Send a Cow. The manure has been used to help grow vegetables and they make money every day from selling their surplus.
Their future plans include going large-scale with their vegetable production - an amazing turnaround for a family that weren’t able to eat vegetables before!
Annet and her husband, Moses, were isolated because of their poverty. Now they are well known in the community and have friends. They have been able to buy their own radio and a bicycle from their new income.
“The milk from the cow has really helped. Our family is now stable. I used to be really ill. I was encouraged to drink milk but I couldn’t afford to buy it. Now I don’t have to, it is here in my home. Everyone’s health is so much better now.” Annet Kayanja, Ugandan farmer
Send a Cow help families like Annette’s daily, their work is key to helping so many people to improve their lives. With support and kind donations they provide families who have fallen into poverty with the means to support themselves. By providing key farming knowledge and materials such as livestock they help families in Africa to not only feed themselves but to also maintain a reliable income.
