War affected women farmers receive equipment for increasing their milk production capacities

In continuation of support for war traumatized women, Medica Kosova provided today milking machines with transportation cans and lacto freezes for 22 women coming from rural areas of Gjakova Municipality. Supporting women involved in cow-care and milk production was enabled by Kosova Women’s Network through EU and UN Women funding.

Enthusiasm and commitment to improve farming operation and milk management was quite present among women who received the mentioned equipment.
