While cows require more living space than poultry or rabbits, the fresh milk that they provide is invaluable for a family’s nutrition and health, while also being an important resource to be sold at the market for a steady income.  Cows can have up to four calves in their lifetime, which can lead to a herd.

Vegetable Kitchen
Garden for a Family

In Bolivia, families who live in rural areas have limited access to food. This affects both their emotional and physical health. By providing other means to receive better nutrition, such as by growing vegetable kitchen gardens, local families can have a better quality of life. Each family will receive construction materials, seeds and agricultural supplies.

Garden of Hope

Nazario lives in a remote area in Bolivia, where his nearest neighbour is almost an hour away by foot, and where Chagas disease is rampant – a disease common in rural areas of Latin America where poverty is widespread. He recently lost his wife, which took a great toll on Nazario and his family, as well as their family’s resources.

However, through CBM’s Chagas program, which provides prevention, education and treatment of the disease in partnership with local communities and agencies, participants like Nazario also receive crucial farming provisions, allowing him to grow and produce crops which help provide a source of income, while also feeding his family.

Nazario also received assistance to improve his home so that his family would have greater protection against catching the disease. While making his home safe for his children, they too have benefited from the emotional, spiritual and physical support provided through the program.
