A Pair of Chickens
Don’t forget to buy the chicken this Christmas – or two! By purchasing this gift through PRESENCE not presents, you are helping Christian Aid to give people living with HIV in Zambia to start their own business. What an egg- cellent idea! Makes a great Christmas present or stocking filler.
This gift could help a person like Anne, living with HIV, to earn money to buy nutritious food and medicines.
Anne was struggling to manage the condition and its emotional fallout, and was ostracised by her community. Then she attended a counselling and clinic service run by a Christian Aid partner and joined its nutrition programme, where she learned how to farm organically with others. They were given chickens to help them set up businesses. Anne earns money from selling eggs to buy nutritious food and medicines to keep her healthy.
