Simon’s story – ‘Simon’

Posted on November 30, 2011 by admin

Each year, I ask my family for my presents to be turned into gifts for the poorest of the poor in Burundi.  A goat costs just £20 and provides milk, manure and meat for children in Pygmy families.  For £60, a gift can help buy a bicycle for a community worker.  And for a stonking £500, a gift can buy a cow (or for less money, can part of one!), which provides milk for people and empowers them to move out of poverty.  Smaller gifts of any amount can be used to contribute to the orphans’ Christmas party.

I love knowing that gifts I don’t really need are being transferred into life-savers the other side of the world.
