Help Mali's Rubbish Dump Donkeys
Exhausted and starving, animals working on Mali’s rubbish dumps resort to eating plastic bags, cardboard and rusting metal.
Donkeys straining under back-breaking loads, weary heads hanging as they trudge through the mud and rubbish: this is the living hell of Mali’s rubbish dumps.
Carting away tonnes of waste from homes and businesses is how their owners earn a meagre living, so there is no time to rest for man or beast – and very little food to go around. These weighed down and weary animals are so desperate they’ll eat anything.
But you can help them.
Your gift could turn a miserable existence into a better life.
Our vets really are amazing and their regular visits to Bamako’s rubbish dumps have made a huge difference. The working life of an animal used to be just six months – now it’s five years! We receive no government funding and rely 100% on generous supporters to treat and care for donkeys like these.
So please, if you can, help us make life better for the working animals of Bamako’s rubbish dumps:
£33 could pay for the medicines and equipment such as sedatives, antibiotics and bandages to treat an animal's leg wound.
£15 could give five donkeys a course of painkillers each to ease their pain and discomfort.
£6 could vaccinate two donkeys for life against the potentially fatal disease, tetanus.
Please, donate what you can today and help us continue this vital work for the Donkeys of Bamako.
