Your generous donations enable us to provide food, vetenerarian care, hoof care, barn maintenance, stall bedding and other requirements to our donkeys.
I am a donkey. I have worked very hard for my masters. But now I am no longer needed. I've been abandoned on the streets to survive on my own. Here it is difficult to find food. When the hunger is unbearable I eat plastic and anything else I can find. I have grown thin, tired and weak. I don't understand why people kick and beat me heartlessly. Many of my friends are attacked and bitten by street dogs and are severely injured. Our miseries know no bounds when our new borns are eaten away by these dogs. Many of us are run over by speeding vehicles, leaving us to die on the roads. I wonder why our pains and existence mean nothing.
Then one fine day something amazing happened to me. I was brought to this wonderful place that I now call home. When I first came to “Home for helpless donkeys”, I thought to myself that I must have died and reached heaven. To my surprise I was very much alive amongst other happy donkeys. Now I have made many friends, my belly is full of fresh food and I have a shelter from the severe Ladakh winters. I no longer regret to be alive.
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.
