Ronny Onyango's story could easily have ended in tragedy.
When he came down with measles four years ago, his mother Faith was scared. In a small, west Kenyan village like Ulafu, a disease like measles could kill a child. For the poor Onyangos, the emergency regimen of milk and eggs prescribed to nurse Ronny back to health would have been impossible years before.
But Ronny was able to get the nutrition he needed thanks to a gift from Heifer International: a cow named "Bahati." The family sold the milk she produced to buy chickens for eggs, and when Ronny fell ill and needed the protein, it was Bahati's milk that nourished him back to health.
The family cow saved Ronny's life — and keeps him healthy and active today.
Multiply the story of Ronny's family by about two million, and you'll have an idea of Heifer's impact on hunger and poverty this year — and it's all thanks to donors like you.
