Help animals worldwide from home
Making a difference to animals on the other side of the world
The Internet has given each of us the ability to help animals and make a difference in a number of ways.
We wanted to give you an example of how an animal charity whose base is in the UK are helping animals overseas. Many are reaching out to help sister charities abroad or set up training and education programmes on the other side of the world for locals.
Last year, the Brooke cared for 650,000 horses, donkeys and mules in countries ranging from India to Pakistan, Ethiopia to Afghanistan, Israel to Guatemala, and Jordan to Egypt. Mobile ambulances costing £16,000 each send out veterinary teams to help animals, many of whom have collapsed with sheer exhaustion and dehydration at the side of the road, unable to go any further.
The Brooke sees education and training local people as a vital part of its work. In most cases, injury and illness is caused because of poverty and ignorance and superstitious beliefs. The Brooke teams have a number of opportuntiies to carry this out.
