Bóthar, the Irish charity that specialises in the gift of livestock in development aid, is encouraging everyone to give life-saving gifts this Christmas and help struggling families in the developing world.
The impact that Irish dairy cows and goats are having in the field is incredible and it is all thanks to donations from people just like you! Receiving the gift of an Irish dairy cow through Bóthar will be the first time that many of these families will earn an income. This gift of a food-and-income-producing animal is like receiving the keys to a successful business.
It’s a nervous and yet exciting time for the families who are getting a very special animal - one that can continue to give for many years. Irish dairy cows do very well in the Developing World, giving about 16-20 litres of milk per day, whereas for example in Rwanda, the local, indigenous cow produces just one litre per day.
By supporting Bóthar’s Christmas appeal, you are helping to lift at least one family out of poverty.
It’s really easy to give: phone the Bóthar office on 1850 82 99 99 with your donation or donate online at www.bothar.org.
In return, you’ll receive a gift card, which you can give to your loved one on Christmas Day.
