Eddy, 9, and his brothers Roelmer, 13, and Alex, 11, can now afford school, medicine and food thanks to gifts from Heifer donors.
Nine-year-old Eddy lives with his mother, father and two big brothers on the family’s farm in Guatemala. Much of his early life was characterized by chronic hunger and uncertainty; there was simply not enough money to pay for basic necessities like food and medicine.
Eddy's parents, Silvia and Teodoro, were desperate for an opportunity to earn more income. So when they heard about a Heifer International project that could help them improve the productivity of their sheep herd, they anxiously applied.
Now, thanks to generous donations from Heifer supporters like you, the family's lives have been changed for the better, and they are overwhelmed with gratitude.
It means so much to the families we serve that you are willing to believe in them when it seems no one else will. Your next gift is absolutely essential for their success. Please give now to Heifer, and start a chain of opportunity for families like Eddy's by Passing on the Gift®.
