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.
