Donkeys and mules get help in Morocco at the Jarjeer Mule & Donkey Trust

Posted on


There’s a wonderful video on the BBC website about an amazing couple who live in Morocco who have set up a retirement home, orphanage and care centre for working animals there.

The centre is in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains near Marrakech.

Charles Hantom is a retired solicitor from Manchester, and Susan Machin was a barrister in Manchester too.   They moved to Morocco and as well as caring for these equines, they also provide work for local people.  You can find out more about them here.

The muleteers are all Berbers raised alongside animals and who have ridden since childhood so they are experienced in the handling of donkeys and mules.

You can help by making a donation or adopting a mule or donkey.  And don’t miss Tommy’s Blog.

Thank you to Charles, Susan and the muleteers for all you’re doing to help the equines of Morocco.
