Families in The Philippines and Uganda will have a friend for life when these little ducklings begin producing nutritious eggs, which can be eaten or sold to pay for medicine and education. The hungry ducks also gobble-up the caterpillars, slugs and snails that destroy crops.
How this gift helps
Duck egg omelettes are 11-year-old Van’s favourite food. They are delicious, contain more protein than chicken eggs, have a more concentrated source of omega-3s and are packed with vitamin D. Nutrition-rich foods are essential for children like Van in Vietnam and thanks to a Gifts for Good donor his family now has ducks to provide a regular supply of eggs.
