Donations in Action – Pigs, Guatemala

ChildFund works with communities to help them towards self-sufficiency and the distribution of piglets in Guatemala has provided families with an ongoing opportunity to earn a much-needed income. For many families in need, pigs are a precious asset:

“I am happy for the swine project. To me, it is one more way of having my own business for the benefit of my family. It also gives me the opportunity to contribute with my children’s education and I see this project not only as a temporary one but as a permanent one. My husband is also interested in the project and we do not want to forget our pigs because we’re very grateful with the people who make these projects possible.”
