historic yet fragile transformation is underway in Egypt, and our thoughts are
with its citizens during these unsettled times. As is often the case in the
midst of such unrest, however, animal suffering is widespread -- and the
situation in Egypt is no exception.
Society International has had a steady presence in the Middle East in recent
years, and our HSI representative is in Cairo to identify and meet the most
pressing needs: Helping local and regional organizations with veterinary and
medical supplies and animal care. We’re also supporting the efforts of Worldwide
Veterinary Services to transport supplies to Cairo.
animals -- like horses, donkeys and camels -- have been hit hard, especially
with the decrease in tourism, and many are without food, water and other
necessities. Companion animals, too, have been adversely affected. Some have
been separated from their families -- even left behind when their families were
evacuated -- and now they’re in shelters which are overflowing. These
are the animals we’re helping.
we’re not alone in providing hands-on support in this emergency, HSI is
dedicated to long-range animal welfare work in Egypt. We’re working to
strengthen the country's emerging animal protection community on several fronts,
including providing crucial spay/neuter training to veterinarians and helping to
enhance their surgical skills.
generous support makes this work possible. Thank you for all you do for
