Our incredible journey
Their adventure took them to remote towns and villages across the region. But what they found horrified them.
Kate and Nina saw malnourished donkeys and mules buckling under the weight of huge loads; camels struggling across the hard stony ground between Algeria and Tunisia with nothing more than piece of old rubber sewn into the pads of their feet; and cart animals with terrible wounds caused by the repeated rubbing of ill-fitting harnesses.
With great courage and dedication, Kate and Nina set about the job of creating a more compassionate world for working animals.
Their pioneering spirit and unwavering passion continues to inspire SPANA’s work around the world to this day.
