Bóthar's Memorial Ark
25 years ago the Rwandan Genocide changed lives in the worst possible way. By sending an animal on our commemorative Ark, you and your company can help change lives for the better...
I know it’s easy to say NO but think about saying YES...
There are families in Rwanda who are waiting for YOUR YES.
In 1994, 1 million Rwandans were slaughtered in three months in the fastest killing spree of all time - the Rwandan Genocide.
And the world still turned.
But for Rwandans it was never the same again.
When you think back 25 years it seems a lifetime ago. It is a lifetime ago.
But for survivors of the Genocide it still seems like yesterday.
For war widows of the Genocide, their scars won’t let them forget.
But they don’t look back.
They look forward...
For they are the lucky ones.
Because their lives were changed when they received the gift of an irish dairy cow from Bóthar.
They look out the window at their Irish dairy cow and they know they have been given a life-line.
Many affected by the horrors of the Genocide were able to turn their lives around and were able to start living again thanks to the gift of an Irish dairy cow that was donated by the Irish public.
Irish dairy cows have enabled families to remain in their villages surrounded by people they love, rather than forcing them into unsavoury jobs in the larger urban areas.
For those that have already benefited from a Bóthar gift, they tell us that were it not for the gift of an Irish dairy cow, they do not know if they would have survived.
For their neighbours who have yet to benefit?
They wait in hope.
For it will be their turn soon...
Help is coming.
This Autumn, Bóthar is sending multi animal species to the people of Rwanda to commemorate 25 years since the Genocide. Irish dairy cows, Irish dairy goats, Irish pigs, Irish bulls, Irish chicks and AI straws will all start new lives abroad.
Will your company please be a part of this very special Ark? I really hope you can get on board.
