When animals help families build a better future

When animals help families build a better future

Want to give that special someone something udderly unique this Christmas? Then why not make a really dairying moove – get them a Cow (€50/£46) from Oxfam’s Unwrapped range of gifts.

In Tanzania, widow and mother-of-six Noongishu’s life has been transformed since receiving a cow. She is now able to sell milk to earn an income for food and basic household items to provide for her family.

“I have been lifted from the pool of poverty and am now valued in the society,” she said. 

In many communities around the world, livestock provides a financial backbone for poor families, helping them to feed their children, pay medical bills and cover school fees. The funds generated by this gift help communities who rely on animals make a secure and sustainable living. 

Money raised from this gift supports our Livelihoods projects. Oxfam Unwrapped helps people build happier, brighter futures.
