Give a fishing kit. Fish are a wonderful source of protein and income. Help provide an impoverished family with fishing gear such as a fishing pole, fishhooks, lines, and fishing net. Your gift will help a family in poverty feed their children.
Pound for pound, fish is the most nutritious meat around. Fish are high in protein, which serves as the body’s primary building block. Fish can also be an excellent source of healthy fats, vitamins, and calcium. While poverty can put other types of meat out of a family’s price range, fish are more accessible—with the right fishing gear.
Many families rely on fishing for their entire income. So when 16-year-old Maung’s family lost all their fishing equipment to a cyclone in Myanmar, they had no way to earn a living.
“I was worried,” says Maung. “We lived off coconuts and I wondered if we were going to survive.” But thanks to fishing gear and more provided by World Vision, Maung is back to helping his dad fish and support their family once again.
You can help another family like Maung’s with your gift of a fishing kit!
