A local cow is a blessing for a family in rural Africa.

I received my cow from Ripple Effect [formerly Send a Cow] and named her Jacinta. She has just had her first calf called Omuse, who I will give as a present to another local family through my self-help group. I use manure from my cow on my farm which means I get better produce. As a result, my family is much healthier.
