Change the life of a family in poverty.

Families throughout the world rely on farming as their source of income. However, they often live in poverty and malnutrition because they lack the agricultural skills or resources to sustain their land. Your gift to these farm projects will touch the lives of impoverished families in Jesus’ Name.

1. Support Needy Families with Sheep and Wool-bearing Animals

Farming isn’t easy in Bawledge, Niger, with its poor soil conditions and inadequate access to water for irrigation. But villagers who receive the gift of sheep are able to supplement their income by selling the offspring. People around the world rely on these animals for nutritious milk and warm wool. You can provide a sheep or other wool-bearing animal to a family in need for $80.

2. Provide Income-Generating Fruit Trees to a Family

Sometimes something small can make a huge impact. We’ve found that seedlings of trees like avocado, papaya, and mango can thrive even on the fringe of the desert. For just $45, you can give seedlings to a family that will produce food for many years to come.

3. Give the Gift of Goats and Dairy Animals

Goats are changing the lives of women-headed families in Uganda. The goats they receive and sell from Samaritan’s Purse allow them to earn additional income to support their families. In Kenya, fresh goat’s milk is helping keep children healthy. For $70, you can provide a goat or another dairy animal so that we can minister to families around the world.

4. Help a Poor Farming Family

In the remote highlands of northern Vietnam, our staff members are teaching children and teenagers at an orphanage how to improve their health and nutrition by growing vegetables and mushrooms and raising chickens. With your gift of $55, we can provide agricultural training and also supply drought-resistant plants, fertilizer, and tools to a poor farming family.
