We are thrilled to share with you an inspiring update from Richarde Traeger, Trustee founder of the Lamu Animal Welfare Clinic (LAWC). This reflection on the past year illustrates not only the meaningful achievements made possible by our partnership but the resilience of a community navigating post-Covid challenges, conflicts, and climate change in the Horn of Africa.
Unleashing Potential: The Gift of Essential Equipment
Thanks to your generous support, SNIP International was able to replace LAWC’s worn-out trapping equipment with ten new trapping, carriers, and restraint cages. This contribution has been vital in enhancing LAWC’s capabilities to care for animals in the region.
Numbers Tell the Story: A Year of Compassionate Care
The passion and commitment of the LAWC team has led to:
– 2,375 animals treated, vaccinated, and neutered.
– 41 mobile clinics spanning six diverse locations.
– 15 educational sessions fostering responsible animal ownership across eight schools, as part of the School Children Animal Welfare Awareness Programme (SCAWA).
