2 Chickens for Moldovan Family

$
$40.00
Gives 2 chickens
Gift Description:
$40 will purchase 2 chickens for a family in Moldova. Chickens provide food and fiber for families in developing countries. A gift of two chickens ensures nutrition and income for a family in need. Tending chickens is one of few opportunities for many to save and invest in rural developing countries. One laying hen can produce up to 200 eggs a year, providing families with a protein-rich diet. What is not consumed can be sold at market for a profit. Chickens also provide pest control and fertilizer for vegetable gardens. The amount of land needed to raise chickens is relatively small compared to other livestock, and they can survive on agricultural and household waste.
