This holiday season PDA’s donation to Heifer International will result in the purchase of Irrigation Pumps. Access to safe water is a necessity we often take for granted, but poor families around the world struggle to obtain this vital resource. Heifer’s solution is to help rural families install treadle pumps that maximize the number of growing seasons and allow them to expand the types of crops on their land. This cost-effective process is much cheaper than using motorized pumps, and more efficient than using buckets to fetch water.
This is made possible through the continued support of our clients, colleagues, friends and family. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
Heifer International’s mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth.Dan West was a farmer from the American Midwest and member of the Church of the Brethren who went to the front lines of the Spanish Civil War as an aid worker. His mission was to provide relief, but he soon discovered the meager single cup of milk rationed to the weary refugees once a day was not enough. And then he had a thought: What if they had not a cup, but a cow? That “teach a man to fish” philosophy is what drove West to found Heifer International. And now, nearly 70 years later, that philosophy still inspires our work to end world hunger and poverty throughout the world once and for all.
