Mondial gives away chickens for a good cause

At Mondial we have a little tradition: instead of Christmas presents, we prefer to give something for a good cause!

That's why we decided this year to support Caritas' "gift giving with sense" campaign. Thus, we donate 60 "flocks of chickens" to families in Ethiopia, because even a small group of five animals improves the lives of these families and provides a sustainable source of income and food.

Especially poverty-endangered peasant families get five chickens and one rooster. Chicken farming contributes to a healthier diet in the form of eggs and proteins and increases household income through the sale of eggs and chickens. In addition, the beneficiary families receive training in keeping and caring for the chickens and in building an adequate chicken coop.

You also want to help but donate no chickens? How about a goat, a donkey or a pig? Learn all about this important and, above all, meaningful project at Caritas.
