In South Sudan, horses and especially donkeys play a central role both in cultivating the fields and as a means of transportation and valuable possession for the families. With our AWELAD project we aim to improve the health of horses and donkeys as well as sensitize people, including animal owners, traders and government representatives, to animal welfare. In addition, we train community animal health workers in basic horse and donkey health issues and possible medical interventions, and provide them with the necessary materials.

Our team members Dr. Luke Wono and Rose Juru were guests on the morning show at the local radio station Miraya and gave insights into the project work. You can listen to it here:

 

 

And in this photo gallery, you can see a recent intervention to treat and deworm animals in Northern Bahr el Ghazal state. These interventions are part of the AWELAD project, financed by the Brooke Foundation – Action for Working Horses and Donkeys, and co-financed by contributions from the Department of Development and Cooperation SDC as part of the PROWIGA II project.
