Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page. All of us at The Chichester Biltong Company really appreciate your time and donations.
All proceeds will be going to Christian Aid via Present Aid, their online shop, where we shall be buying cows to send to developing countries.
Gifts such as a cow not only provide families with milk but also give them a voice in their community. Having a cow that produces milk will provide a source of income to lead onto a brighter future for generations to come.
Our goal is to buy a herd of cows so they can make less fortunate families lead happier, more prosperous lives. We want to be able to make a difference. Plus, after all the biltong we have made, we thought it best to rescue a few cows.
The best news is The Chichester Biltong Company will be rounding up all of your lovely donations each month to make sure we can gift a whole cow, even if that is just £1 we will add £149.00 to the fund call it ROUNDING A COW.
Is providing livestock the best way to help people?
Many of the people at Present Aid have a history of keeping livestock and it is part of their culture. The projects that Present Aid support are run by local partner organisations that assess the most suitable ways to help.
How are the animals cared for?
Owning livestock is a means of providing a living for many people in the developing world. Consequently, making sure the animal is well cared for is a priority for people who own them. The recipients of livestock receive training in animal husbandry and local veterinary care is usually available. It is quite common for the animal to enjoy a better quality of life than its owner.
