Heifer International LA
Help build a milk processing plant for the struggling farmers in Heifer Internationals’ VIETNAM DAIRY DEVELOPMENT Project. In January 2016, fellow tomato and dear friend Marianne Muellerleile, visited with the Vietnam farmers and is involved in this Project. She saw for herself they are warm, kind people whose goals are the same as ours: to put food on their table and earn an income for clean water, medicine, school and better homes. Heifer is changing people’s lives, creating long term change that allows families to be self-supporting in Vietnam with this project and across the world with many other countries to end hunger and poverty.
