Your Support is Vital
Charlotte lives in an impoverished village in rural Rwanda. She and her husband Valence had trouble feeding their household of five. They could barely afford one or two meals a day—mostly beans, flour cake, and the occasional vegetable—and ate meat only once a month.
But when Heifer, with the help of friends like you, gave Charlotte a goat and trained her how to rear it, things began to improve. She named the goat Mutabazi, which means ‘Rescuer,’ because she knew this little animal could rescue her family from hunger and hopelessness.
The 46-year-old passed on Rescuer’s first female offspring to another family. Then she started adding to her own herd. Today, her seven goats produce 1.5 gallons of vitamin-rich milk each day. With her goats so productive, Charlotte is able to give half the daily milk to all the malnourished children in her village. She’s literally saving the lives of the young ones in her community through her milk donation!
