Alex Ridgeway, our farriery project coordinator, explains why a career in farriery can not only improve the lives of millions of horses, donkeys and mules, but can also be a secure and prosperous one for young people.
Brooke and The Worshipful Company of Farriers (WCF) have announced today that they will work together on the charity’s Global Farriery Project.
Last month, Brooke Pakistan provided food rations to 1000 working horses, donkeys and mules across Peshawar, Lahore, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Multan and Karachi, as communities continue to feel the harsh economic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Brooke is carefully monitoring how the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic will affect our work in the coming weeks and months.
Brooke has launched a new ‘How To’ guide for people writing or updating their Will, specifically giving helpful information on how to do so whilst also adhering to current social distancing guidelines. It’s included with a whole host of other useful information on Will writing, available on the Brooke website.
The Kenyan media has reported that the ban on the donkey skin trade, achieved earlier this year, has been effectively lifted just four months after being announced.
Brooke has launched a brand new TV advert to coincide with its Covid-19 Emergency Appeal. Created during the UK lockdown, the ad is made up of entirely pre-existing footage and is voiced by a Brooke employee.
To achieve change, we must stand up for one another.
This April, Brooke Pakistan teamed up with the Aman Foundation to provide equine owning communities with 450 bottles (100ml) of hand sanitiser to help protect them from Coronavirus.
