When you give livestock to a family in poverty, you give them a sustainable source of food and income. Milk, eggs and meat can be eaten or sold. Manure from the animals fertilizes food crops, helping families grow more fruits and vegetables. And the livestock’s offspring can be sold for ongoing income.
And the best part about giving livestock through Compassion is that you give so much more than the animal itself. We partner with local churches around the world who know the unique needs of their neighborhoods. When people like you donate livestock, the staff at these churches deliver the animal and offer training in how best to care for it so the family benefits from it for years to come.
Through Compassion’s charitable gift catalog, you can donate livestock like cows, goats, pigs and chickens to help a family in need. (Don’t worry: Our church partners will do the hard work of actually getting the animal to the family!)
