Widows Hope Project - Livestock Development Project Update

October 16, 2014 -- We wanted to update you on the Widows Hope Project at FOVC Ethiopia and its progress

- From July to September 2014, seven cows gave birth

- The widows are using their products for their household consumption as well as a source of income by selling products including butter, cheese and milk

- In order to keep the animals healthy, we treated the cattle (sheep, cow and lamb) in collaboration with the Damot Pulasa woreda Agricultural Development office

- According to the treatment, woreda officers recommended that we change some cows as they will not likely give birth to offspring. Based on this, seven cows were sold and replaced by others.

- Our social worker with a nurse regularly visit widows and communicate with them on different issues. In addition to the home-to-home-visit, all widows were called up for general meeting and discussed saving money, family management, how to feed and keep animals provided to them, self and environmental hygiene education with project coordinator social worker and Nurse.
