This holiday season, give a gift that gives hope to those in the most need. Catholic Relief Services supports some of the poorest indi- viduals in countries overseas. Below is a small sampling of the items available in the Catholic Relief Services Catalog to benefit communities in need. To view the entire catalog, or to make a purchase, visit www.crs.org and click on the Ways to Give tab on the top of the homepage. GIVE THE GIFT OF FOOD Flock of Chickens, $40: Eggs and chick- ens give families adequate protein. Chickens are also easy to raise, which can help to generate added income. Household gar- den, $150: These gardens assist poor families with im- portant nutritional variety in their diets. The gardens are easy to take care of, making it easy for people with limited mobility. Fish for a pond, $60: With a stocked fish pond, it allows families to have a high-protein dinner that is close by. The fish also provide an additional way to generate income for farmers. GIVE THE GIFT OF HEALTH Health exams for 12 children, $25: Children in the poorest countries dont have access to the necessary health care. Providing routine healthcare exams allows the childrens growth and development to be monitored, in addition to providing appropriate vaccina- tions. Mosquito nets for a family, $30: Mosquito nets allow families to sleep safely, while protecting them from contracting malar- ia. Malaria is preventable, but is often contracted because of the lack of insecticide-treated nets. Wheelchair, $200: Peo- ple with disabilities in poor communities have limited opportunities to get the equip- ment needed to overcome their disability. 12 December 9, 2016 THE U.P.
