send a cow

With Harvest Festivals approaching many churches are involved with organisations like Send A Cow which celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year. This is also the time when the airwaves and newspapers are full of 'experts' telling us how these projects are no good for the countries they are intended to help. Paul Heiney has written an excellent article in The Times called 'Can sending a cow feed a country?' focusing on the value of the work of charities like Send A Cow in transforming the lives of individuals and communities. Heiney writes about one of the women who received a cow back in the mid nineties. Betty Kiwanuka is now on her third cow and she has called it Kirabo: Gift of God.

At Great Leighs Church on Sunday 28th September we will be celebrating our Harvest Festival and the guest preacher will be Martin Reed from Send A Cow.
