Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you sending aid for animals to Gaza?
Since the outbreak of war, there have been no shipments of supplies for the animals. Animal feed has run out and the situation is desperate. In addition, veterinary medications have also run out, which means the vets cannot treat injuries or diseases

What aid are you sending to Gaza?
We have sent animal feed, including horse pellets, along with a range of veterinary medication. We are now working to send a second shipment of aid out to Dr Saif’s team to help them continue their mobile clinics.

How can you justify using valuable space on aid wagons for animal supplies?
Everyone recognises the devastating human impact that the war is having. However, if the animals are not fed, they cannot help support their owners by providing transport, to help move food, water, building materials and essential medicines through the war-ravaged landscape. By helping the animals, we are also helping their owners and the wider community.

How much money do you need?
We have already funded one aid shipment which cost US$10,000. We are aiming to send a second shipment, as well as funding a new team on the ground to provide first aid to animals in need. We would like to raise £50,000 to fund all of this work to date, keep our mobile team running and be ready to finance future aid shipments.

What will your team do in Gaza?
Our newest mobile clinic team will provide first aid to animals who have been injured by the war, or through living in the awful conditions currently experienced in Gaza. This could include injuries from pulling heavy carts, wounds caused by shards from explosions, or from diseases.

What if you have to stop working in Gaza due to the war?
Our team are relentlessly brave, providing first aid to animals in unimaginable conditions. However, if we need to we will ask them to cease work and to take the actions needed to ensure their own safety. If we need to pause our work in Gaza at any time, we will review and restart when it’s safe. If we need to pause long term, any money raised from this campaign will be used to fund equally vital work to help animals in the West Bank through our three vet teams there, or further afield to fund our vet team in Egypt.

What will donors be funding?
You will help us to fund aid shipments of food and medicines for animals. You will also be helping to fund our new team providing first aid treatment to animals in desperate need. Thank you so much.

If we are lucky enough to raise more than £50,000 ($63,000) 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.
