Annual Report 2020/21
Adaptability in the face of uncertainty: our annual report of an extraordinary year.
Thanks to our loyal supporters and dedicated staff, 1.6 million working horses, donkeys and mules benefitted directly from our work in country programmes. Millions more animals are benefitting from our international policy work to improve global animal health and welfare.
Like every organisation, Brooke’s activities and performance were dominated by the impact of COVID-19. Our determination to protect working horses, donkeys and mules throughout the pandemic made us more adaptable.
Rather than put projects on hold, such as the training and mentoring of paravets, we used technology to continue giving support. Where necessary, we implemented emergency feeding and treatment programmes ensuring that the fragile economic circumstances of many equine owners did not result in an animal welfare crisis.
