Goats, originally uploaded by ChildFund New Zealand.

Hard to believe but here we are again – a couple of weeks from Christmas. I’m still posing the big questions: what am I going to get my dad, my brother, my niece and nephew…?

Mark from Zambia in the photo above looks like he’s already received his Christmas present! He’s beaming because his family were given goats from a ChildFund New Zealand supporter – and the goats have produced healthy kids.

This means Mark is drinking nutritious goats milk daily, it means his family will be able to sell the milk and surplus goats for income. And that means he’ll be able to go to school.

Now that’s a really great Christmas present! If you’d like to give a truly meaningful gift this Christmas check out our great selection of gifts at www.childfund.org.nz/catalogue.

In addition you get a beautiful gift card outlining the benefits of the gift that you can give to your family member or friend. Show you care this Christmas and put a smile on a child’s face – like Mark.

Take care, and have a safe and happy festive season.
