Story

Thanks for visiting MONA-UK's Fundraising page.

MONA has been asked by CITES  in Madrid to rescue and re-home AFRICA, a 10 year old female chimpanzee being held illegally in a private home in Gran Canaria.

She was taken from the wild only 10 years ago and smuggled to Gran Canaria where her current owners bought her at the harbour. It is likely that her entire family would have been killed during her capture.

AFRICA urgently needs our help as she is being kept in a tiny cage on the owner's terrace. She is allowed into the house and treated as a human child but is just a matter of time before she hurts someone, which puts her life at risk. As you can see from the photo, she has patchy hair and sores on her head which are probably caused by her compulsively plucking her own hair through boredom and stress.

We need to raise a total of £9,500 to build a quarantine facility where she can be housed for three months before her introduction to her new family.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to donate funds: MONA-UK gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

Please donate today so that we can rescue AFRICA as soon as possible.
