Ben in Uganda

In May 2018, Send a Cow Ambassador and actor Ben Aldridge travelled to Uganda to meet families and community groups that we work with and to find out more about Send a Cow’s approach to tackling poverty and hunger.

He helped with the daily chores such as cooking and collecting water, gaining a real insight into the daily lives of the families we work with.

During his week-long visit, he also met people facing huge challenges such as HIV/Aids, disability and lack of food. But what he also found, was communities and families transforming their lives. Not with hand-outs, but with practical support.

Speaking about his experience in Uganda, Ben says:

"It’s not handouts, it’s not aid; its sustainable, lasting change. Send a Cow really is doing amazing work but even more impressive is the people and the communities that they’re working with."
