We have been very happy that we have made so many new friends around the world via the internet, especially with our facebook page WalkwithdonkeysCrete and our websites www.walkwithdonkeys.com and www.donkeycarecrete.com
We are astounded by the generosity of people who wish to help us to help the donkeys here in this little corner of Crete. Every euro makes a difference and if it wasn’t for your help we would not have been able to give a new home to our two latest donkeys (Boots and Coconut). This brings our total to 10 donkeys living here with us.
This autumn Alistair was very busy and singlehandedly built a new stable and fenced in a small area so that the four ‘golden oldies’ can live together without the bullying of the younger donkeys.
We have received a consignment of new headcollars and have started distributing these to the donkeys in need in the area. This will be continued as part of our outreach programme at the end of February when we hope to be able to provide treatment to many of the 30 or so working donkeys in the village of Males and the 12 in Kalamafka. Our donkeys have also benefitted from this. Here are two pictures of Tessa, the left one is when we first got her with her chain that was cutting into her nose, and the second a happier donkey!
We are still wanting more recipes for a cookery leaflet that is being produced by one of our supporters in the uk . Please send recipes to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Buy an exclusive ‘walkwithdonkeys’ T shirt. Do your Amazon shopping via our website or just make a donation via paypal or bank transfer (How about an after christmas sponsored slim?!)
Just please help these donkeys.
Alistair and Suzanne
