Update from the Sanctuary and the West Bank – 5 October 2022

Dr Rakan and his team have helped so many donkeys this last week, including visiting builder donkeys who so desperately need his help – access to veterinary treatment is expensive and hard to find out in the West Bank. You can see some of his photos below:

This included treating donkeys near Bethlehem:

The Sanctuary is busy preparing for the colder, wetter winter months. You can see below photos of straw being moved out from under the shelter. Once Tarek has finished moving the straw he will cover it with the old plastic removed from the poly tunnel (which has recently been renewed):
