A family with three members with disability
Toan and Nghia are 18 and 14 year old brothers and were both born this birth defects. At a young age, they were diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. Toan and Nghia are not able to receive a surgical or medical intervention due to their special illness. They live with their mother and father in Da Nang in poverty. Their father also suffers from a brain injury caused by a recent motorbike accident. This leaves their mother as the sole bread winner in the family trying to take care of 3 disabled people. To try to overcome their financial problems, the family borrowed money from the government to buy and raise two pigs as an alternative means of income. Unfortunately, their mother has not been able to keep up with the small interest payments on the loan. So now she still want to have a try to raise pigs again.
Five donated porkers ($250) will help the mother make higher income to take care for 2 sons and her husband, with which she is going to earn USD 500 every four month or about USD125 per month on average.
Raising porkers to sell at the market is one way to help farmers make a better income than growing rice. A little pig costs about USD 50 in Vietnam and it takes breeders 4 months to have a porker to be sold at the market. Profit for raising a porker is about USD 100, which is not much but could help ensure stable income for farmers.
