Animal Nepal Earthquake Relief for Animals_Page_01

The earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday April 25 left a trail of devastation. Apart from hundreds of thousands of people, countless animals were affected too. Animal Nepal launched an Emergency Appeal to respond to the crisis through donation and volunteer appeal. We even organized various workshops and launched major protocols in the treatment of livestock with the help of world vets volunteers. Reaching out to the forgotten victims of the earthquake, Animal Nepal in the wake of the disaster treated more than 400 animals. Three veterinary teams visited Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Dhading, Sindhupalchowk, Nuwakot and Rasuwa to help farm and pet animals. They witnessed the loss of farmers as their lives are fully dependent on their animals who have always been their main source of income. Animal Nepal recently launched it’s interim report on Animal Nepal Earthquake Relief for Animals which includes the detail of our relief program.

Santa Bahadur, caretaker at Animal Nepal’s Donkey Sanctuary pampering Maneka, one of the surviving donkeys.

“We wanted to run outside but could barely stand. My wife and I somehow managed to escape. Outside, the sick donkey’s isolation room collapsed in front of our eyes, followed by the tall chimney of BBM Brick Factory.” Santa Bahadur, who is in his late 60s, works as caretaker at Animal Nepal’s donkey sanctuary. Like all of us, he was deeply shaken by the earthquake that hit the country on April 25. He shares his experience with communication officer Chadani Lama.  “I never saw such turmoil in my life”, he recounts.

Reaching out to the forgotten victims of the earthquake, Animal Nepal in the wake of the disaster treated around 900 animals, including 450 equines working in brick factories. Three veterinary teams took great risks to visit the worst affected districts, including Lalitpur, Dhading, Sindhupalchowk and the outskirts of Kathmandu to help desperate farmers. “Many people consider animals less important but to farmers their livestock are essential to the people’s survival”, says Director Uttam Kafle.

The teams were shocked by the severity of the injuries. They came across broken spines and broken limbs, and treated various cases of pneumonia and diarrhea. The full report can be read here.
