Just £15 can make a difference to the lives of working donkeys in Zimbabwe
In Zimbabwe, poverty, droughts and lack of resources are part of everyday life. A lack of veterinary care means that, without SPANA, sick and injured animals would not have access to the lifesaving treatment they so desperately need.
We work tirelessly for these animals.
In just one day at a mobile clinic, our vets can travel over 500km, treating over 150 donkeys and teaching their owners how to care for them better in the future. But we can’t do it without your support.
When Jeni stumbled into our clinic in Lutumba, he was suffering from colic, was dangerously dehydrated and soon began rolling in agony on the floor. Our vet, Dr Erick Mutizhe, soon realised that the young donkey had eaten too much dry grass and not drunk enough water, which led to this painful condition.
If we hadn’t intervened, Jeni’s situation would only have got worse, but following a course of painkillers, anti-spasmodic drugs and rehydration treatment, he was soon back to his best again.
Please, will you give your support today and help rescue more working animals like Jeni from suffering?
