A world vision christmas

World Vision has over 100 gifts that you can give on behalf of a loved one this christmas. Rather than get your Dad a new pair of socks, you could give a family on the other side of the gift of 5 ducks - providing them with so much more than some fluffy companions. 

World Vision explains:

Give ducks to a hungry family today and they’ll benefit from hundreds of large, protein-rich eggs all year long. Extra duck eggs and hatched ducklings can be sold to buy medicine or help send a child to school.

A duck also offers valuable down-feathers, famous for their thermal insulation and padding — great for use in bedding materials and warm clothing, or to fetch much-needed income at the market. Ducks even produce fertilizer that can dramatically increase crop yields!

Ducks have made a big difference for Elna Lajo’s children in the Philippines. “It’s a blessing from God that we were chosen [to receive the ducks],” says the mother of seven children. Easy and inexpensive to care for, her ducks have become a “livelihood that will send the kids to school.”

Once Elna’s ducks multiply, her family will donate ducklings to help other hungry children and families in their community. “Our family is grateful that we are entrusted by World Vision … to take care of the ducks,” says Elna.
