Non profit organisation, Cairo Egypt
We are a small group of people working to help horses, donkeys and camels by the pyramids in Cairo, Egypt.
The "pyramid horses" and camels are being used to take tourists and local Egyptians on rides around the pyramids and the surrounding desert. Horses and donkeys are also used as transport for locals and to pull carts selling various produce. Stables here are small and narrow and often filled with sand, so donkeys are used for both cleaning out manure and to bring clean sand inside.
Most of the owners we work with have low incomes and many are illiterate. They don't have money to pay a good vet and they don't have access to updated knowledge about horses. Hence, they rely on old methods used by their fathers and grandfathers. The main goal for PFK is to educate owners to better understand their animals' needs. A horse with joint injuries needs rest, not linefiring. A horse that doesn't eat needs a health check and maybe having its teeth rasped, not strings through its belly. A horse with fever needs anti-pyretic medication, not to have its ears or neck cut with a razor blade "to let dirty blood out".
We offer free medical treatment including vet assessment, x-rays, blood tests, farrier work, teeth rasping and deworming. The horses that are in need of daily care become inpatients, meaning they stay with us, with all feed and medical care free of charge.
How to donate
We are a small charity and apart from our workers on the ground, we are only three admins to run the Facebook-page, website and reply to messages and emails. We don’t receive any grants and fundraising is done whenever we have time for it. The only reason we are able to operate is due to the financial help we get from our supporters, which pays for rent, feed, medication, salaries for the workers, vet fees, farrier… among many other costs that come with sick animals.
