Our donkey update – 25th January 2024

News from Gaza

Last week, we told you about the animal food and medication purchased jointly by ourselves and Animals Australia for Sulala, the only registered animal rescue organisation in Gaza.

We hoped to bring you news by now but as we write, the food and medication is still waiting at the Rafah border crossing as there is a backlog of trucks waiting to be checked and allowed in. We will bring you more news as and when we have it.

News from Israel

This week, our dedicated vet Dr Eliran, based at our sanctuary in Israel, has started vaccinating all our donkeys against tetanus. This disease carries the potential to cause agonising symptoms and can be fatal, making it absolutely crucial for us to ensure the health and safety of our donkeys.

News from the West Bank

In the West Bank, Dr Rakan, Dr Eyed, Dr Omran and their teams have been hard at work holding mobile clinics across the country.  

Sometimes, not all the animals treated are donkeys but the dedicated teams never turn any animal away – here Dr Rakan is treating a sick dog which went on to make a full recovery.

News from Egypt

In Egypt, our dedicated team’s mission is to significantly improve the lives of the donkeys and mules that are used to take bricks to and from the kilns. A pivotal part of our team’s work revolves around education. It is through spreading knowledge and awareness that we can make a lasting impact on the well-being of these animals. Our efforts focus on demonstrating the importance of the donkeys’ welfare and teaching effective, humane care practices.

And finally…

Thank you to all who entered our auction to name this little foal, found abandoned and injured.  He is safely at our Nablus hospital in the West Bank and we are delighted to say that the winning bidder decided to call him Patrick!  Welcome to our donkey family little Patrick.

We hope this update has helped to show you how your donations are helping donkeys in desperate need – thank you for your support!

Thank you!
