International Working Animal Day
The charity SPANA launched its “International Working Animal Day” on the 15 June 2016. The idea of the day is that it will raise awareness about the crucial part working animals play in developing countries worldwide.
One BILLION people around the world rely on working animals. Working animals include horses, donkeys, mules and camels. The people are some of the poorest on earth. One working animals can be responsible for helping to put food on the table for an extended family of 30 people.
The campaign has the support of TV star Paul O’Grady. It is trying to persuade governments and aid organisations to make sure that these amazing working animals receive the care they deserve.
SPANA works in several ways to help working animals:
