Solidarity Gift of Goats and Sheep to Nomadic Pastoralist family Niger ( €25, £21, $27)
Nomadic Pastoralists in Niger engage in subsistence farming in hot, dry and dusty environments. The under-five child mortality rate is 263 per thousand. Poor nutrition and health status with high levels of malnutrition are the consequences of acute food insecurity. The establishment of food cereal banks, water wells and the provision of micro-credit to help women to help fund the purchase and breeding of goats and sheep are the inputs required to prevent malnutrition. Your gift will keep a child under the age of five alive, and empower pastoralist families to survive.
