Emergency appeal for the donkeys of Gaza

Why is Safe Haven working in Gaza?

The war in Gaza is a catastrophe which has brought death and destruction on an unimaginable scale. Thousands have died, many more have been injured. But there are also donkeys and horses caught up in the conflict, animals that have become a priority for a population that’s struggling to access food, water and basic services.

Donkeys and horses are now more important to the people of Gaza than ever before. With fuel scarce, and many trucks, vans and cars destroyed, donkeys and horses are now the main mode of transport – moving people, food, water, building materials and essential medicines through a war-ravaged landscape. 

Understandably, given the situation on the ground, the desperate needs of the people and the lack of alternative transport, these animals are working in appalling conditions – suffering malnourishment, dehydration and excruciating wounds from the heavy loads they carry and pull.

How will Safe Haven help donkeys in Gaza?

Led by Dr Saif, Safe Haven for Donkeys’ team in Gaza is working tirelessly every day, often setting up clinics by the side of the road, to provide relief to donkeys and horses that have horrific harness wounds, as well as injuries from missiles and bombs. 

Our first aid package of animal food and urgently needed veterinary medication has just crossed into Rafah, Gaza and we are now organising the next shipment to send to Dr Saif to help donkeys and horses in dire need.

With your help, we can send even more animal food and medicines into Gaza over the coming months, and support our team with delivering first aid to animals in need.

By donating to our emergency Gaza appeal you will help feed animals and provide first aid to their painful wounds – we are then helping their owners and the wider community.

So please, support us today. Together, we can help the working donkeys and horses of Gaza, who so desperately need your help. 

Will you support our Gaza appeal to help deliver first aid to donkeys and horses in need?

We urgently need to raise £50,000 to fund our food and medicine shipments, as well as funding and equipping our new mobile team who will treat injured donkeys in Gaza.

With your support, we can provide help to these animals.

£20 could fund food for a donkey or horse in Gaza.

£100 could help support our new mobile team providing much needed first aid to donkeys and horses in need.

If we are lucky enough to raise more than £50,000 to fund our work in Gaza this year, we will use the funds to support other working donkeys in the West Bank and in Egypt.
