“I can’t believe how different life is for me and my family."
Carfi Sara, Ethiopia
A drought in the Borana region of Ethiopia in 2011 killed Carfi Sara’s livestock. Carfi relied on his animals for milk and food as well as making money.
“Before your help, we were paralysed by poverty. I was desperate. My children would see their friends drinking milk and they would be envious”
Through a project funded by CAFOD, Carfi was given eight Goats. "Now my children have milk of their own to drink – and enough to share with others. I bought my oldest daughter a uniform and shoes so she can go to school”
