Have you ever struggled to purchase a Christmas gift for the person who has everything?
How about buying them a goat - for a family in Afghanistan, or a midwife kit - for a birth attendant in Cambodia?
Aid agency TEAR Fund New Zealand has launched a new initiative called Gift for Life. Purchases from the Gift for Life
catalogue provide practical items and assistance to poor people in the developing world.
The catalogue includes eight gifts, which range in price from $25, for a midwife kit, to $400, which buys playground
