Give a goat to a flood affected woman, and help her raise an income.
According to the Provincial Disaster Management Authority in Sindh, 236,114 animals have died in the flood catastrophe in Sindh only. Apart from creation of scarcity of meat,this has impoverished thousands of flood affected families as animals are the only assets for many of them, and the only source of milk for their children. Instead of sacrificing your animal this year and sending the meat for distribution to the flood affected families, help them develop the assets they have lost, and to stand on their own feet.
Giving animals to flood affected families for breeding purposes will be a good way to provide an asset to them and lead to greater income and food stability rather than a one time distribution of meat. Therefore, you may wish to compliment or divert your ‘qurbani’ budget for actually breeding animals through rural women. Indus Resource Centre (IRC) will identify women of affected families who have returned to their villages, purchase goats and manage other logistics of the transfer. IRC will also train women groups in preventive and curative health of animals — vaccination, common ailments and their remedies, nutrition tips. The goats will be purchased shortly after Eid ul Azha and an initial market survey reveals that a milking goat will cost Rs 9,000 to 10,000.
