Story

Sterilisation is the only way to stop the suffering. Abandoned by people who don't know about or can't afford to sterilise their cats, vulnerable kittens are often 'dumped' and left to die on a rubbish tip in the center of Azemmour. ERHAM's sterilisation programme aims to reduce the population to stop this heartbreaking crisis happening again and again.

In April 2019, 180 kittens 'dumped' over a 2 week period. We immediately went into action, organising a clean up day, laying a 3x3 meter concrete slab with a tiled feeding area, collected up all the kittens and gave them necessary medical treatments and also set up a daily cleaning and feeding programme. We homed many of the kittens, but many were sadly too sick to save.

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.

    I'm excited to say our October sterilisation campaign welcomes pro volunteers from the UK, New Zealand and Australia. ERHAM's first intensive campaign; we hope to sterilise 200 female cats and many males while giving medical care to every street cat and kitten we find on our rounds. This campaign has been born out of the need to stop the heartbreaking kitten dumping problem witnessed in April this year. Although we have improved the living conditions of the abandoned kittens, many suffer and die and we hope to stop this appalling practice.

    Dear friends. Since the beginning of this campaign, working with local people we have sterilised 88 female cats, created a 'kitten city' on a waste ground where people 'dump' kittens, set up a feeding and cleaning programme, treated 100's of kittens for fleas and worms, and cleaned and treated twice as many infected eyes. We have homed 46 abandoned kittens (a major feat in Morocco) including 4 lucky ones and a blind cat who were homed in the UK. In October we are carrying out an intensive sterilisation campaign...... see next update
