Heifer Project International - Inhumanity in the Name of Humanity
Comments by: Frank and Mary Hoffman - 5 Jun 2006

Dear Barrett:

Thank you for your letter and the thought you put into it.

When slavery was rampant in the world, people probably made the same kinds of comments about the uphill battle the abolitionists were facing in their efforts to end the suffering and cruelty. So, this kind of uphill struggle doesn’t bother us.

One of the major causes of hunger and disease in the world is an animal based diet and the intensive farming operations that support it. Even in small rural operations there is an increase in disease, just as we’re seeing in Asia today.

The only permanent way to solve the hunger problem is through a plant based diet, and Heifer could help in this area, if they really wanted to.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
