People love to give sheep. One healthy ewe gives highly nutritious milk for essential protein, vitamins, and minerals, plus plenty of wool to knit warm sweaters and blankets. Sheep often give birth to twins or triplets, which can be sold for income or bred to produce a whole flock of woolly grazers. Plus, sheep's milk is up to twice as rich as cow's milk in nutrients like protein, calcium, and B vitamins that growing kids need. It's the perfect gift to celebrate the birth of Jesus — the Lamb of God.
Sheep have made the difference for Sandri's family of seven in Albania. His dad used to have no choice but to leave the family to find work in a neighboring country. But since receiving the gift of sheep through the World Vision Gift Catalog, Sandri's dad now stays home and earns a living as a sheep farmer.
"I like the sheep because they are great, they give us milk, cheese, and yogurt," said 10-year-old Sandri. "The lambs are growing up faster than me and now I can't hug them easily, but my dad said that we are going to have other small lambs soon."
"The milk, cheese, and yogurt are not only very tasty for us, but by selling them we will have a better economic condition and a better life," says Sandri's older sister. "I'm very, very happy…my father is planning to stay home now and won't go far away from us anymore."

We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The needs shown in this catalog reflect World Vision projects at the time of writing and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears and donations will be used to provide assistance where it is needed most within that category or to address a similar need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
