Jalala is our latest donkey rescue. She was found on a mountainside by a local. She was limping badly as one of her lower legs and foot was badly swollen. We took Jalala in and discovered that she has a broken kneecap which we are currently treating her for.
We are still checking for any other underlying medical issues and it is too soon to say whether she will make a full recovery but in the meantime we are giving her the best medical attention and care possible and was able to educate the locals on the mountain and at a nearby farm the importance of working animal care and how to humanely look after donkeys.
Jalala is slowly pulling through and reside in the care of Nowzad and is thankfully making progress every day.
She will be included in our education programmes for working animals.
SAMSON, ROSIE AND KUSHI
We are so pleased to say that Samson, Rosie and Kushi have really gone from strength to strength under our care.
They have been played a pivotal part in our education programs for humane treatment of working animals,
We have also currently got a program running for para-veterinarians from Kabul University (90 students) to visit our facility once and week (as the Nowzad clinic is now far more advanced than those at the university) and our donkeys have provided a fantastic hands-on training role that the veterinarians would have not usually received due to lack of resources.
Nowzad has also been running community outreach programs on a weekly basis in a district called Shura, which is where our shelter is located. The donkeys have provided a fantastic example of how a working donkey should be, including the correct weight, healthy hooves, eyes and coat etc and have been an extremely useful tool in how to humanely look after working animals.
