This week the people and animals of Guatemala have suffered horrendously due to the continued eruptions of the Fuego volcano - many have sadly passed away or are missing. The Brooke want to raise £10,000 to create a fund to help the horses, donkeys and mules, their owners and families who are suffering from one of the worst natural disasters Guatemala has ever seen.
Brooke, with its partner ESAP, have worked in Guatemala to help working horses, donkeys and mules since 2006 and its teams are currently on the ground working tirelessly. So far, they have been visiting the emergency shelters, which have been established for both human and animal evacuees and have provided food and water to the victims.
During this difficult time Brooke will liaise with others on the ground in Guatemala to co-ordinate efforts effectively, including World Horse Welfare.
Any donations received will enable the team to activate an emergency relief programme for the horses, donkeys and mules affected by providing food and water, emergency treatment and support to their owners.
The Brooke will regularly post updates on its Facebook page as and when it receives them from colleagues in Guatemala – so keep a watch on their for news. Any donations received over the £10k target will go towards Brooke’s work in Guatemala.
