khushaal livestock project
During the floods, there were many news reports of villagers who risked their lives to rescue their livestock. These stories may have seemed perplexing to urban dwellers but make sense when considering the fact that cattle form a vital source of income for most rural households.
Given the importance of livestock, Engro Foundation collaborated with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and started a program called the “Khushaal Livestock Project” which helped to restore the productivity of farm animals to pre-flood levels.
