Nomadic Herders in Mongolia

Description

When a severe winter killed this family’s animals, they were forced to leave their nomadic lifestyle to find work in the closest city. Through World Vision’s Gift Catalog, they were able to repopulate their herd.

When a severe winter — known as a dzud — killed this family’s animals, they were forced to leave their nomadic lifestyle to find work in the closest city.

With the gift of animals through World Vision’s Gift Catalog, they repopulated their herd and returned to the steppe with their livelihood intact. 

Now, when they go to sleep at night in their ger (tent) they wake up at sunrise surrounded by hundreds of their sheep, goats, yak, and horses.
