Change the life of a family in poverty with a gift from the Samaritan's Purse gift catalog.

Families throughout the world rely on farming as their source of income. However, they often live in poverty and malnutrition because they lack the agricultural skills or resources to sustain their land. Your gift to these farm projects will touch the lives of impoverished families in Jesus’ Name.

1. Support Needy Families with Livestock

Farming isn’t easy in Bawledge, Niger, with its poor soil conditions and inadequate access to water for irrigation. But villagers who receive the gift of chickens are able to supplement their income and have wholesome sources of food, financial security. You can provide four chickens to a family in need for $40.

2. Provide a Home Garden to a Family

Sometimes something small can make a huge impact. We’ve found that providing seeds, tools, and training to a family can help them produce nutritional food.For just $50, you can give seeds, tools, and training to a family that will produce food for many years to come.

3. Give the Gift of Goats and Dairy Animals

Goats are changing the lives of women-headed families in Uganda. The goats they receive and sell from Samaritan’s Purse allow them to earn additional income to support their families. In Kenya, fresh goat’s milk is helping keep children healthy. For $40, you can provide a goat or another dairy animal so that we can minister to families around the world.

4. Help a Poor Farming Family

In the remote highlands of northern Vietnam, our staff members are teaching children and teenagers at an orphanage how to improve their health and nutrition by growing vegetables and mushrooms and raising chickens. With your gift of $150, we can provide agricultural training and teach families and communities how to grow plentiful, nutritious crops.
