BENEFITING: AMSALE GESSESSE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
Help me build sanctuaries for abused, abandoned, and neglected horses! I moved to Ethiopia 3 weeks ago and since then I've been struck by the daily heartbreaking site of abandoned and throw away horses in the streets. Everyday I see at least 3 of them standing there in the middle of the streets looking emaciated, dehydrated, and completely lost and zoned out. Ethiopia is a gorgeous country with a lot of potential, but unfortunately there is a lot of poverty. A huge part of Ethiopia's population depends on horses to feed their families but once they are sick or old, and after a long hard laboured often abused life, many are abandoned, and left to fend for themselves in the streets. They have absolutely no water, and no food, and they literally starve to death, are eaten alive by hyenas, or are hit by a moving vehicle - whichever one comes first. My aim is to build a safe haven and sanctuary for these innocent beings that they can be taken to, and for the first time live a dignified and free life with the medical care and attention they so need and deserve. Please help me help them! They need us and I know together we can save them.. Thank you!
