Loveable all-terrain transport


Funnily enough, the humble donkey has often been called a beast of burden. In fact, its role has helped lighten the load for many families by carrying water, fuel and crops for long distances, over the roughest ground.

Donkey gift in action

El Geneina, Darfur, Sudan, 2004.

Owning a donkey means El Geneina, pictured, can finally farm a lot more much needed food for his family. He said: "Since using the donkey it has been much better. I can cultivate a bigger area of land. I used to use a meloda (traditional hoe) which took me a long time. Thanks to the donkey and the plough I can send my children to school, my wife will cultivate and I will fish to get enough money for uniforms."

This gift goes towards our Livelihoods programme.
