One of the ways in which many of Gorta's supporters choose to help us in our work is through the purchase of a goat through our 'Lifetime Gifts' scheme:

Some villagers in the community of Nyaravur in northern Uganda, shared with Gorta staff how ownership of goats had brought about dramatic improvements in their lives.

These included Angela, a grandmother who having reared her own children, found herself having to raise her grandchildren single-handedly following the death of their parents from AIDS.

It was clear to Gorta staff during this visit that the goats' milk had improved the general health level of the villagers.

This was particularly evident with younger children and the elderly, who are very aware of how the generosity of Gorta's supporters has had a direct impact on improving their lives.
