May is the start of the ‘hungry months’ in Darfur. With the heat of summer, all surface water has dried, and villages are devoid of all plants, grass and other greenery.
The families are scraping by on what food they have whilst they wait for the rains to come in July – only then can they think about planting their seeds, if they haven’t had to eat them already. Then they have to wait for the harvest.
Families rely now more than ever on their goats for their children. Goats have evolved to survive in the arid climate – finding enough food to eat amongst the sand. Their milk is crucial for the health of the children.
We need to provide goats to more families to help see them through these hardest of months before new hope arrives with the rains. Can you donate a goat to a family in need?
