Purchasing animals and clean water is a great way to support sustainability within our mission partners around the globe. Many of the animals provide more than one product. All the animals provide meat. Goats, sheep and cows also produce milk. Chickens produce eggs that can either be eaten or fertilized to produce additional chickens. Cows and pigs produce waste that is used as an excellent fertilizer for vegetative crops. When you purchase an animal, it’s not a one-time gift. Your gift continues to provide for years to come and is a blessing for so many people. In developing countries, about 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. 1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease. Clean and safe water is essential to healthy living.
