raised of £36,000 target by 10 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,820 to found a charity, Equine Orphans of the Coronavirus in Andalusia, EOCA, for abandoned horses & donkeys after the COVID-19 disease has passed.

    Andalusia, Spain
    Funded on Sunday, 26th July 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    We work with horses in Andalusia, Spain - see and - and since we currently have no clients, indeed we are currently confined to our apartment when not looking after our own breeding herd of twelve, we thought we should do something to help during this difficult time. We are not doctors or nurses, but one thing we can help with is the economic consequences of this virus, which are yet to be fully felt, which will lead many people in this area to cease to be able to feed and care for their animals, in particular their horses, donkeys and mules.

    With this in mind, we want to set up a charity called Equine Orphans of the Coronavirus in Andalusia or EOCA. Our plan is to use the funds we raise to rent a piece of land to pasture as many 'equines' as we can in the immediate aftermath of the disease with a plan to rehoming them once things return to normal, even if that means giving the animals, and any residual funds, to another, larger charity. However, that is in the long term. In the short term, there are going to be a lot of animals going hungry and thirsty, especially as the land here changes to summer when there is no grass and little water. This Just Giving page is just the first step, after that - and once we are released from confinement by the Spanish government, the hard work will begin.

    Thank you for considering donating to help these animals: every little helps.

    (Since we were putting our own twelve horses out to pasture anyway, we estimate we will be able look after a further 36 - provided they don't all arrive at once - hence the sum of money to provide for a summer of food, water, shelter - shade - and veterinary inspection.)

        Keep up the good work. I can't move my newly acquired TB broodmare to get covered this season but that's a First World Problem by comparison.

        I am an Australian who lived in Andalucia with my two young children for 18 months 40 years ago. It was the greatest adventure of our lives. Easter ferias , the bull fights and stunning horses ....

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
