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.

Thank you.
