Lighten the Load
Comfortable padding and treatment for harness wounds
Life in Nouakchott, Mauritania is tough for a working donkey. Every morning Drissa pulls a cartload of water bottles from the filling stations to houses in the community. Drissa’s owner makes a small living from doing this for six to eight hours each day, enabling him to support his family. But carrying loads of as much as 400kg in the 40oC heat, the donkey often pays the price. Makeshift harnesses make life very uncomfortable for animals like Drissa, causing wounds that are constantly rubbed raw with no chance to heal. Thankfully, SPANA offers free treatment for these avoidable injuries, and also provides soft, comfortable harness padding to prevent future injuries.
This gift will help to treat painful harness wounds for animals like Drissa, and provide soft harness padding.
