Samaritan’s Purse is an international relief and development organisation that works through local churches to proclaim and demonstrate the love of God amongst communities in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
This year, The School of Nursing and Midwifery have donated money to this charity instead of spending money on sending Christmas Cards to colleagues.
We have raised £142 to date and want to tell you what we have bought as Christmas gifts with our money and why.
£60 for chicks
Rich in protein and Vitamin A, they will provide extra nutrition and can be sold for supplemental income. For just £10, Samaritan’s Purse can help a poor family by supplying them with a starter flock of a dozen chicks that will grow up to produce more than 2,000 eggs!
£52 for a goat
Goats were vital in biblical days to provide nutrient-rich milk, and they are just as important today for families living in hard places. Just one goat can produce enough milk each week to sustain a family, with plenty left to sell at a local market.
£30 for bees
David (pictured) was struggling to provide for his wife and two children. But through our beekeeping project in Kenya, he received his own hive of bees and learned how to harvest their honey. Now David earns enough income to pay his children’s school fees, and he was able to buy goats so his family will have milk
Your £15 gift can provide a starter hive and training, offering a family hope for a brighter future.
