The herder communities of Mongolia used to rely on ancient wells to provide life-giving water for their horses, yaks, camels, sheep and goats. But many of these wells are now becoming damaged and unusable. In addition, natural disasters like dzuds and climate change mean that other natural water sources are freezing over and drying up.
As water becomes increasingly scarce, exhausted horses are forced to travel further every day – sometimes as far as 40 miles – just to be able to drink and to survive.
With fewer and fewer places for their animals to drink, herders have to keep moving to find water. Horses like Kalumet often become severely dehydrated and exhausted, and prone to painful injuries like gashed legs and scraped knees when they stumble and fall.
Will you stop suffering like this with a kind gift today?
We’re working with our trusted partners CAMDA to end the dehydration and exhaustion these animals endure in their search of water. With your support, we’ll start work on building new wells where there are no rivers, lakes or other water sources in the Gobi region of Mongolia, so animals have a much easier access to a constant supply of water.
Please will you support our vital outreach programme and help more working animals like Kalumet?
