< Back to Our Donkeys


Age: 18 years old

Location: Jericho

In August 2023, Dr Rakan was alerted to the plight of a donkey found on the streets of the Palestinian city of Jericho.  The poor donkey had been set alight and one of his ears was badly burned.  He must have been in so much pain.  Dr Rakan immediately had the donkey transported to our rescue centre in Nablus, where he sedated him, gave him painkillers and antibiotics and began the long process of treating the wound.  Eventually, the donkey's condition was stable enough for Dr Rakan to amputate the ear.  The donkey, named Rakan after the man who saved him, has recovered well and is settling in with his new donkey friends.
