The Brooke Animal Charity gains new Trustee
It is with pleasure that we can announce that Natalie Waran, Director of the JMICAWE has been appointed as a Trustee of the Brooke Animal Charity.
The Brooke's vision is of a world in which working horses, donkeys and mules are free from suffering. They work towards this through direct veterinary treatment, community programmes around animal health and well-being, research and education.
The veterinary approach is based on supporting the provision of preventative and treatment services to working horses and donkeys, both in the short-term and long-term. They promote the importance of an evidence based approach, and they are keen to ensure that improvements to the welfare of working equids are based on the best available qualitative and quantitative evidence. They focus their longer term work on community development and they apply learning methods that have been used successfully in a human health and development context.
