ICAWC 2019 was held in Valletta on the beautiful island of Malta. The team consisted of Nigel, Annika and Lisette from SNIPi and Miranda Luck represented MDC Exports. In addition, Dr. Maggie Roberts and Sarah Reid from Cats Protection were a great help during the unpacking and handing out of equipment.
The conference was very successful with a wonderful buzz from all the enthusiastic delegates. In total 75 pieces of TNR (trap-neuter-return) equipment were donated to 41 different Animal Welfare groups of which 34% had not received donations previously. As expected there were less groups than in previous years due to the island location.
The groups came from 24 different countries: Albania (2), Belgium (1), Bulgaria (2), Croatia (3), Cyprus (1), Denmark (1), Estonia (1), Georgia (1), Germany (2), Italy (2), Japan (2), Malta (2), Nepal (1), Palestine (1), Poland (5), Portugal (1), Romania (2), Russia (2), Serbia (1), Slovenia (2), Spain (2), Sri Lanka (1), Sweden (2), Tanzania (1).
We thank our partners MDC Exports Ltd and Cats Protection for their ongoing generous contributions to the equipment donations and look forward to working together again next year at ICAWC Sofia in Bulgaria!
