Nora, 12, knew her mom was struggling to feed her and her sister. So she tried to find ways to help.        

“I asked my aunt if we could climb her tree to pick fruit from her tree to sell.  It was dangerous, but I knew I had to do something,” she said.  

Nora and her sister collected and sold thirty-five pounds of fruit that day.   

“I showed the money to my mom and she said, ‘Where did you get this?’ And I told her what we did,” said Nora

“I felt so desperate when I thought about them working to provide for food for us,” said her mom Gisella.  

The family continued to struggle with hunger.  That’s when Operation Blessing provided help.  We trained Gisella and the girls, over a three month period, how to raise and care for chickens and how to run a poultry business.

“At first I was nervous, but then we got the hang of it!  We learned how to raise them, how to feed them and keep them healthy,” said Nora

At the end of the training, Operation Blessing gave Gisella and the family a hundred baby chicks, a coup, feed and medicine.  

“I got excited as we watched the chickens grow each day,” said Nora.                             

It’s been more than a year since we gave them that batch of chickens.  Gisella said they’ve earned more than $900 dollars profit from the business so far. Now they all have plenty to eat and even saved enough put a new roof on their house.  

“Thank you Operation Blessing for helping us to move forward!” said a grateful Gisella.

“Thanks for the chickens and for helping us to have food to eat!” added Nora.
