Heifer International Leads Alternative Mission Trips

A dedicated member of the business and local community, Zariq Siddiqui has served in several sales capacities for Abbott Laboratories since 1999. Outside of his work, Zariq Siddiqui gives his time and resources to a number of charitable organizations, including the United Way, the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging, and Heifer International.

Founded by a Midwest farmer, Dan West, nearly 70 years ago, Heifer International is dedicated to ending hunger and poverty in all corners of the world. The organization helps to connect underprivileged people with the resources that will enable families and communities to become self-reliant. 

Among the organization’s programs are alternative mission trips, which are offered at Heifer International’s many learning centers. Featuring both day and overnight programs, the mission trips help individuals understand how the human race, animals, and the environment all work in concert with one another.

The mission trips are designed to foster stronger relationships between Heifer members and people in general. During the meetings, members learn about the causes of poverty and hunger, and the solutions to end them. The program also inspires members to want to help and care for others less fortunate than themselves.
