Please save working donkeys like Manna from deadly road traffic accidents.
The SPANA team were able to save Manna’s life, but putting a stop to these accidents in the first place is vital – and the solution is simple.
Just a strip of reflective material could have prevented Manna, and so many other donkeys, from being hit by vehicles, suffering agonising injuries and even being killed.
The reflective collar project was developed as part of our community training (CT) programme in Shashe, Zimbabwe. Through the CT programme, SPANA’s community training officer is working with local communities to provide highly visible collars. These are given free of charge to owners, along with education on their correct use – to save donkeys from suffering dreadful injuries, and far worse in road traffic accidents.
Please take a look at the short video and report which detail how you can help bring an end to the suffering and fatalities caused by road traffic accidents. Manna’s ordeal is by no means uncommon – hardworking donkeys risk being killed on the road every day.
No donkeys should have to face such a deadly risk with every step they take. Please support our Christmas appeal this year and give a donkey like Manna a brighter future.
