Quotes from expressions of gratitude from recipients of Delany Foundation funding:

I am happy to say that the 200 broilers we bought two weeks ago, none has died. The management is well done. We are also selling indegious eggs. We have one student selected to fund from the sales revenue.He is a very needy case. The first beneficiary of the project. We are in line with the objective of the poultry project. Keep on praying for us. Following are some photos of the project. Many thanks.
