Dawit the donkey was treated by our team in Nouakchott, Mauritania for painful wounds on his back and flanks. Wounds are a common problem in this city, where working donkeys play an important role distributing heavy water barrels to families in the community. With only a makeshift harness at his owner’s disposal, Dawit’s sensitive skin was being rubbed raw as he worked each day. Our team gave the donkey painkillers and carefully cleaned and treated his wounds. The vet showed Dawit’s owner how to pad and properly fit the harness, explaining the importance of preventing Dawit’s suffering in future.
