The Simba Fund: How to make a difference
You are all aware of our plea last month on behalf of Pipas and Hope, the two puppies severely injured we rescued at Hasdal.
From this blog we made an appeal, 20 liras to help us save the lives of those two puppies.
The response was overwhelming, in a matter of hours tens of members wrote to us and offered their help.
The final amount raised? Close to 2000 Turkish Liras. The vast majority of it coming from contributions no bigger than 20 liras, most of it coming from Turkey.
So, from now on you can look at those pictures and feel proud that, with your small contribution, you saved four lives.
There is a staggering number of animals suffering terrible injuries that die in the streets of Turkey due to lack of treatment.. Most animal welfare organizations are too engrossed in internet bickering and slander will do absolutely nothing. At times, they will go as far as stopping any rescue operation or intervention harboring so-called nationalistic reasons.
Over the last two years I, together with a very small number of volunteers (you know who you are), have financed countless of operations and rescues. We intend to continue fulfilling this role, offering a last golden chance to those who, simply, have no hope.
Last week’s experience fills us with hope that the Let’s Adopt! community has finally realized that; together we can achieve so much more; that together we can become a true force for change in this country; that together we will be able to save the lives of those who really have no hope and to become a example for other animal organizations to follow.
In order to continue, and expand the experience, we have re-launched the Simba Fund for The Strays of Turkey.
The Fund will be raised EXCLUSIVELY through thecontributions of our members. Small or large, those contributions will be used entirely to finance life saving operations as well as post-op treatment and expenses like the ones you see below..
The holiday Season is about to begin, we will all be receiving presents from our friends and family.. What better present than to save a life?
