Van takes good care of his ducklings because he knows they’ll soon start producing highly nutritious eggs, which can be eaten or sold to pay for medicine and education. The hungry ducks also gobble up 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.
