Women Helped In Many Ways

Smyrna Women's Empowerment Centre, Turkey

 

This winter, the weather conditions were harsh. Many were ill in our neighbourhood and our Transformational Community Development (TCD) team. Thankfully, everyone is healthy now. We are also in the winter break time for the schools and sharing lots of good times with the children.

Production at Holy Land Gardens is still going strong. During our first year, things have been incredibly positive. We have planted more than 30 fruit trees. The gardens have been beneficial to both the poor and the community in general.

Goats Not Taken for Granted

Goat Loan Programme, Jordan

 

Fatmeh has received six goats, five female and one male. Three of the goats are currently pregnant. A fourth goat was pregnant but unfortunately lost its kid. During pregnancy, there is no production of milk.

 

Fatmeh is also doing repairs on the barn to make it a healthier environment for her goats. She feeds the goats each morning and, later, she would take them out to graze and then feed them again at night in the barn.

This past month, there was an ongoing effort to help immigrants with food vouchers. The people coming into the country are going through quite a vetting process, and many are entering with very little in the way of financial resources.
