Hurricane Mitch slammed into Choluteca,
Honduras leaving a trail of devastation. "Even before, life
here was hard," says Doña Pastora, but Mitch swept homes,
belongings and animals away in seconds. The
Heifer Project is rebuilding hope with a chicken project
to provide an ongoing source of eggs. Watching her hens drink water
from an old tire cut in half, Doña Pastora says, "Receiving
these chickens was like receiving credit. To be able to pay the
loan back when I'm able is of great value." Soon, she'll "repay
her credit" by giving some chicks to a neighbor, as Heifer
requires. Heifer Project has an entire animal catalogue on its website:
llamas, geese, camels. It’s WILD program, Women in Livestock
Development, can change much for women like Doña Pastora.
