In June, ESAF conducted 7 separate mobile clinics at the pyramids area – providing shots for internal and external parasites and treating all kinds of common injuries and diseases for the working horses and camels. The clinics also provided feeding for the most urgent cases.

The animal owners have always been so grateful to see us back in the area, especially the camel owners who have nobody else to rely on. Now they can’t feel they are left alone in the middle of the crisis, and there is someone to take care of them and their animals.

This month some of our vets experienced the work at the Pyramids area for the first time. Some volunteers and trainee vets also enjoyed being part of such an inspiring experience, and, of course, owners volunteered to work as vet assistants at times, grateful for the help and the awareness tips they were given.

ESAF has always been committed to the working animals at the Pyramids, and we are doing our best to continue the long term project for the area.

Also a big thank you to Aida at Digla Animal Rescue for her donation of the nose bands for the working animals.  These soft nosebands replace the uncomfortable wires previously in use.

Very special thanks to all our donors and to ESAF vets Dr. Moh A Al Hay, Dr. Moh Ossama, Dr. Marwa Rabah and Dr. Moh Gomaily for their hard work and dedication to helping the Pyramids camels and horses.
