LA IANDS is helping(at no cost) Mari Kelley in her quest to repopulate the livestock in the Northern Uganda community where she volunteered.

Mari Kelley, a retired VA Hospital Nurse and co-founder of LA IANDS, just completed a 2 year commitment with the Peace Corps in Northern Uganda.

The Iceme community was ravaged by Joseph Kony and his LRA soldiers. Throughout her 2-year assignment Mari worked with a prominent charity developing a plan to help repopulate the livestock in her community. (Livestock helps the community improve nutrituion and employment). She met with community leaders and a veternairan to plan out the program.

After receiving positive feedback from the charity, she was ultimately told that they would only accept new projects if they impacted at least 1,000 homes. The plan we are asking you to support is to purchase 10 pregnant cows. The offspring will be given to other members of the community through the council leaders, as Mari established. The veternarian will not only help purchase the cows, but ensure the recipients are properly trained in their care and will follow-up to keep them healthy.

We will purchase as many cows as contributions will allow. You can make a diffference. Please consider making a contribution to Mari Kelley's Cows.
