    Story

    Jarjeer Mule and Donkey Refuge is a retirement home, orphanage and care centre for working equines in the foothills of the Atlas near Marrakech.

    Peter was admitted severely disabled but having lived 2 years with a broken leg. Each day he walked 2 kms into the town of Tameslohte to the animal food merchant who gave him a bowl of bran and a bowl of grain. He would the return 2 kms to his friend who lived on a farm. His friend has also been admitted to the Refuge with him as he refused to leave her.

    We were asked to take him because children were not only throwing stones at him but also trying to ride him. Normally, would euthanise an equine with a broken leg but this case is different. He has survived for 2 years and deserves a life. Here you can see Peter as he was admitted to the Refuge.

    Jarjeer immediately contacted veterinary surgeons both in Morocco and internationally. Understandably most European vets advised euthanasia but something about Peter spurred us on to find a solution. We took him to Dr Lamrani in Marrakech who has performed surgery for us before with great skill. Having studied the x-rays he believes it possible to operate to re-break the leg and re-align the joint. Dr Lamrani has some of the most sophisticated equipment available and certainly has the skill to perform this operation but his surgery is too small to operate on equines.

    So we are embarking on an ambitious programme to help Peter!

    We are building an operating facility here at Jarjeer and are hoping to raise enough funds to employ another member of staff dedicated to Peter's care for 6 months day and night plus a pool for his rehabilitation. This is an ambitious project that cannot be met out of normal running costs, we have 54 rescued equines to care for. We are passionate about giving Peter a normal life but equally passionate about building a facility for other donkeys in the future. Visit our facebook page and join us every Tuesday at 11 am where we will be updating live! You can also catch up on this weeks broadcast where you can hear the whole story!

    £10,000 is a lot of money in todays world where there are so many needy causes. I want everyone to know that the work we do here at Jarjeer is not just about saving animals but caring about our environment, building communities and developing inter-dependant links between people and their working animals where both are treated with respect and dignity. We cannot change the world but for every animal and human that we can help means their world is changed for the better. Please consider making a one off donation, however small and please share this page with your colleagues, friends and family.

    Thank you for reading our story.

    We will call the new facility "PETER'S CLINIC".

To date everyone who has contributed to this fund will have their name engraved on a plaque as a permanent memorial on our clinic wall. Again thank you from us all at Jarjeer. The clinic will be known as 'Peter's Clinic'. Peter is now part of our family here where he enjoys a good quality of life.

      Thank you for having donated to our clinic and medical fund. We raised £2,430 on this page which has been spent on essential work so that all our disabled donkeys who require surgery can have the necessary treatment here at the Refuge. Peter doing well but has not had any surgery yet as expert opinion is that he wouldn't survive the operation on his broken leg leg. In the short term we will be castrating him and building a summer paddock for him to share with our blind donkey, Jules, and his devoted companion, Hazel.

      Everyone at Jarjeer thanks everyone for their donations. Especially Jo Griffiths who visited us from Norfolk this week and Ruth, the vet from Belgium who promises to visit having made a donation that helps us move on. The plumber is coming this week to undertake a huge task of getting water to all the stables and to finish the plumbing in Peter’s clinic. We are still sourcing the strong pins for Peter’s leg and we anticipate the operation in early January. Carol is always in our thoughts, she knows who she is and we know how much she has done!
