Gifts that Grow help needy kids

Central Leader - - News -

ChildFund is en­cour­ag­ing the pub­lic to buy chicks for needy fam­i­lies as an al­ter­na­tive to buy­ing chocolate eggs.

Gifts that Grow give the pub­lic the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase 25 baby chicks which are ex­pected to lay around 500 eggs a month to feed and pro­duce in­come for a fam­ily.

Other op­tions are the pur­chase of a breed­ing hen and rooster for a fam­ily in a de­vel­op­ing na­tion.

ChildFund says that by pro­vid­ing a child with a fresh egg in­stead of a chocolate one, they will be re­ceiv­ing 100 per­cent of their daily vi­ta­min B re­quire­ment.
