As part of their fundraising for the Christian Aid Sheep’s Head Hike held last weekend in the West Cork Parish of Kilmocomogue Union (Bantry, Durrus and Castletownbeare) the Tweeners (youth club) in the parish have raised €150 to buy a cow. This particular project was introduced to the parish during Christian Aid Week this year. The project is based in Ethiopia and helps vulnerable women like Loko to build a promising future. Loko says:
I refuse to give up hope. I dream of owning a cow one day; its milk would help my children to grow strong, and I could also sell some so I could save enough money to set up a small business buying and selling tea and coffee.
