HN Issue 18 | Goats Galore!

Since 2013, Claude Elisee has been the proud owner of one very lucky goat.


Thanks to generous Gift Guide shoppers like you, Claude received the goat through the Food for the Hungry (FH) animal husbandry program funded by the FH Gift Guide - that is, funded by you! Claude’s goat soon gave birth to one kid (a billy goat).

When Claude thinks back to that time in his family’s life, he remembers, “One day, I needed to buy school uniforms and books, and pay school fees for my five children; I didn’t know what to do because I was in great need of money. I didn’t have any garden to harvest and I didn’t have anything else to sell. Nobody was able to help me. The goats were my only lifeline at that difficult moment. I sold the billy goat and the problem was almost completely solved.”

Claude gave the second baby goat to the Community Development Committee members responsible for distributing goats to other families in need. This Gift Guide goat is the gift that just keeps on giving!

The third time Claude’s goat had a baby, she gave birth to not one, not two, but three kids! These little mischief makers are now one month old and in excellent health. Claude continues to care well for his animals - he knows they will provide critical income in the months ahead.

Claude is very excited about the work that FH is doing in Cachiman, Haiti. According to him, through your support of FH, you are playing an important role in other people's lives in the community, just as you have in his life.

"FH allows me to better farm the land through agricultural training and helps me better save my money through the Savings and Loans Group program." Claude thanks you for your support and looks forward to seeing continued development in Cachiman with the help you are providing through FH.

Through purchasing gifts like Goats, Fruit and Veggie Seeds, and Piggy Banks, you are enabling men like Claude to create a better life for their children and their community. Thank you!
