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 charity.

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


In Azemmour, Morocco, (where I have a little house), there are simply too many cats. Most females suffer a constant cycle of reproduction and hunger. Kittens are born in the streets to malnourished mothers. Sadly, all too often, they lead short lives, dying alone from illness, starvation and dehydration. ERHAM - which in Arabic means 'take pity' - is a Moroccan based charity working to stop the suffering. We would like to hugely increase our sterilisation and treatment programme. Your donation will help us to do this - to put an end to this unnecessary suffering. We will be launching our new initiative on the 8th October with the "Meow festival"!

    Our sterilisation campaign started last week with a sensitisation weekend and a long list of cats to sterilise! We are gaining support from the local cat community which is wonderful. Please read! https://katzenworld.co.uk/2018/05/05/erham-offering-hope-to-the-street-cats-of-morocco/

    Big thanks to everyone who has donated to our cause so far - I'm just back from Morocco where the sterilisation campaign has begun! Until April/May we will continue with female sterilisations by request - many people have cats in Azemmour (esp in their traditional roles as mousers) but can hardly afford to eat let alone sterilise their beloved cat. We are helping these people at the moment, as they can monitor their cats recovery properly.

    In May, when we start our big campaign on the streets we will have our 'recovery house' ready, and will have organised the importation a particular anesthetic to Morocco to simplify the process of sterilising street cats. The people are so appreciative - one man arrived at my house almost crying with a kitten in his arms. He was unable to find a home for it and not wanting to abandon the kitten to fend for itself, (which is the normal practise when the kitten are 4 -6 weeks old) he was at a loss.

    Well done Annie, doing good stuff again! We love cats, but there are clearly too many here and you are doing the kind and humane thing with your project.
