Organisation type: 
Geographical remit: 


To relieve the suffering and promote the welfare of working donkeys and other equines in Zambia. For the provision of veterinary treatment, care and rescue and rehabilitation facilities for these animals together with outreach programs to further education of their care, management and wellbeing, thereby improving the lives of equines and of those who depend on them. 


We are a small and newly formed charity but have already begun to make a big difference by visiting outlying villages with our harness making workshops , by modifying carts along with wound treatment, worming etc. Education is central to promoting understanding and improved donkey welfare and is combined on our visits however we need to develope children's awareness and teaching caring and kindness at an early age is key. We hope to start visiting schools in the very near future.  We have land on which we plan to build a rehabilitation centre; for this will we need significant funds both for construction and continued running.
