Your generous donations enable us to provide food, vetenerarian care, hoof care, barn maintenance, stall bedding and other requirements to our donkeys.
Our donkeys are looked after by Mr. Sonam Angchuk, the caretaker, who ensures that all are fed a wholesome diet of wheat and grass. They also receive regular medical care from the Government's veterinary clinic. The local affairs are looked after by Mr. Stany Wangchuk along with his wonderful team and Miss Joanne Lefson, a South African journalist and the co founder. They visit Ladakh every year with funds and innovative ideas to make the donkeys more comfortable. Joanne is also a cartoonist and she has recently painted the sanctuary with wonderful colors.
We appeal to your hearts to help us in which ever way you can. You may donate or sponsor a part of the future projects of “Home for helpless donkeys”.
You or your company can sponsor us financially or sponsor any product depending upon your budget and the requirements of the sanctuary..
For USD 200 or equivalent you can adopt a donkey for a year. You will be given an adoption certificate and a picture of your donkey.
Donkeys (and their cousins asses and mules) are almost as ubiquitous in India as are cows and dogs. And subjects of hard labour and scorn in equal measure. But not even in one’s wildest imagination could one think of a sanctuary for them. It turned out there is one, and in Leh town in Ladakh of all the places.
