HPSA Southern Africa
Formerly called Heifer Foundation, HPS Southern Africa is a poverty relief organisation working in South Africa since 2001 and providing rural communities with goats, dairy cows, bees, pigs, sheep and chickens. For each animal received, families agree to pass on the offspring of that animal to another person in need, thus providing communities with the means by which to feed and clothe their families.
