REAL CHANGE Starts With You
Wonderful Reasons to Give
When Tri was born, his family was struggling to survive in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam. To put food on the table, Tri’s parents scavenged for wild vegetables to add to their meager servings of rice. But it was never enough and poor nutrition resulted in constant illness including respiratory problems.
That was before Heifer donors like you reached out to help. They have now grown their original gift of a heifer and training into a modest herd of three cattle (a cow and two calves), 20 ducks, 700 chickens and 400 fish. As a result, they have been able to increase their income fourfold, improving their nutrition and health — especially Tri, whose respiratory problems have ceased, and can now attend school thanks to his parents being able to afford tuition and books.
The transformation from poverty to prosperity starts with you. There are several reasons to support Heifer International today.
• Heifer knows how to get results. That means you can feel confident your gift will give a family in need the kind of lifelong boost they need.
• There are millions of other families who need our help. We are limited in action only by our funds. The more money we can raise, the more people we can serve.
We are making such tremendous progress. As long as we continue to work together — with each other and with families like Tri’s — an end to hunger and poverty is in reach.
