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.

    Lockdown in Morocco has meant that ERHAM has had to respond to the crisis by becoming the towns street feeders. Then along came kitten season. I am happy to report that less kittens have been abandoned on the rubbish tip this year, but along with the kittens come viruses capable of killing them. ERHAM has decided to carry out an experimental vaccination programme on at the tip shelter to try to save the lives and stop the suffering of these vulnerable kittens. Your donations enable us to continue with this humane work, and we Thank you!

    Happy 2020! Heartfelt thanks to all of you who have donated to our cause. We have now sterilised 248 cats and saved so many kittens from leading short lives of suffering. Our work at the rubbish tip has increased and we are now feeding 100's of cats and kittens daily while also building new shelters throughout Azemmour. In 'kitten season' we will rehome some of the well kittens from the dump at our new, managed feeding sites. Your support helps us to continue with this humane work. Thank you! Meet 'ERHAM' our rescued disabled mascot.
