Dr Rakan and Nour travelled great distances this week, including 82km out of Nablus to a place called Tulkarm where they were able to help 12 working animals. You can see some of their photos below.
Muzzle wounds and ‘wrinkles’ are caused by inappropriate harnessing, such as with chains. This is why it’s so important to educate owners on the importance of head collars.Here you can see a donkey with a nose protecter already fitted over the chain head collar.
Dr Rakan also called in to check up on the builder donkeys in Nablus old town – here’s a short video of them in their stables.
