The total cost of raising a baby chick for 24 weeks in our highly secured facility is only $8.00. After she grows strong and gets her feathers, we begin to collect her eggs to provide much-needed protein for our children's feeding programs. We also have a program where we give egg-laying chickens to families who can care for them. Each chicken will eventually lay an egg per day, providing great protein, fats, and nutrients to the diet of those malnourished. Each chicken will lay 912 eggs in 2.5 years. That's 76 dozen eggs!
Panama is suffering from 26.5% +++ unemployment as Latin America has been rocked by 269% increase in famine because of the former Covid destruction of the economy. We are here to make a difference during these very difficult times. Your support directly helps a struggling family and their children!
Our goal is to lead the way to make our community “Food Secure” and resilient against future lockdowns, catastrophes, rising food prices, and joblessness leading to hunger. Your partnership is greatly appreciated and is tax-deductible if you are a U.S. taxpayer.
Our chicken laying house is finished and ready to receive these chicks. Here is a current photo of the project.
Thanks for your support!
