Ahmed El Sherbiny, Chairperson of ESAF (the Egyptian Society of Animal Welfare) writes: “Since 2005, ESAF has conducted a weekly clinic in the Pyramids area for horses, donkeys, and now camels.  However, after the revolution [when the horses were starving first due to civil unrest and the curfew, then because of the collapse of tourist trade income], we increased the clinic to three times a week and included feeding….


“As part of our long-term plan, ESAF has now opened a permanent clinic, not far from the Pyramids. This clinic operates seven days a week, from 9 am till 5 pm, providing both feeding and treatment for horses and camels in need.


“ESAF operates a weekly stable visit for the horses that are unable to attend either the clinic or the shelter; there is no charge for this service.”
