In Ethiopia, a donkey costs half the annual family income and is considered the most important possession a family can own. If not for the donkey, most families would not be able to support themselves.
There are approximately 90 million donkeys at work in third world nations. Their contribution to subsistence farming and the basic economy of such countries is enormous. The donkey is the workhorse that powers the subsistence based agricultural industry that supports the populations of these nations.
Healthy donkeys mean healthier children to the families who incorporate them in the cultivation of their land. They are an integral part of the economic structure. In Ethiopia, when a donkey dies, the women cling together and weep.
Thanks to the work of our charity partner Send A Cow, together we can help these families by donating the funds to support their very own donkey. All you have to do is request a quote today and leave the rest to us.*
