We were just checking around some of our partner charities news and we really thought it was cool to hear Poverty and Christian charity Send a Cow have received two new grants that will help them keep fighting poverty.

The grants total £42,500 and will be used to help the most vulnerable people in West Kenya and East Uganda.

The people who live in these places find it very hard to make a living from their land. It is a daily battle for these people to find food for their children and families.

£22,500 of the grant money was donated by the Blandford Lake Trust. This will be used to help 50 families in poverty get into farming for themselves with expert training, animals to get started with and other development tips.

More than half of the people in Kenya live in extreme poverty - this is where the remaining £20,000 from the Tesco Charity Trust will come in handy.

Christian charity Send a Cow will use the money from this trust to assist 600 people in producing more food and even earning themselves an income from surplus production. In each of the countries the funds will make it possible to show the families how to work as part of a community group.

Although this money helps Send a Cow, it's really a drop in the ocean in terms of reaching more people in desperate need.

How can you help?

You can visit the Send a Cow website and make a donation today via their charity gifts online shop. Read more about that on our page here.
