    Weʼve raised £535 to Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue & Protection

    Funded on Monday, 27th July 2020

    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.


    I am dedicated to raising funds for Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue & Protection. Four years ago the Desmonds moved to Liberia to care for laboratory chimps abandoned & left to starve by The New York Blood Center.

    It is illegal to kill chimps for bushmeat &/or have a 'pet' chimp, however, there was nowhere to 'home' orphan chimps, so they were left with their captors. When news of the Desmonds arrival reached the law enforcers, they started to work together to confiscate illegally owned baby chimps & bring them to the Desmonds ~ Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue & Protection was born, as of March 2020 there are SIXTY chimps in their care. August 2019 saw the first ever prosecution.

    They do not have proper facilities for the chimps ~ they afterall were not the reason the Desmonds went to Liberia. We are working to not only feed the orphans, but to also build a sanctuary !!

    The work has started, but there is still money needed, so I HOPE you will buy some raffle tickets to support the work of Jimmy (a vet) & Jenny Desmond & their team of dedicated care givers.

    Tickets are £5 per strip or 5 strips for £20, when you make a donation, I am able to email you a thankyou, I shall also give your ticket numbers in that email.

    The draw will take place on Fathers Day ~ Sunday 21st June

    Thankyou & Good Luck ~ from the chimps !!

      Love you’ve set this page up Debra. I’ve donated a few times as this is one of the most amazing causes and can’t wait to see them fulfil in their new home.

    I have been following Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue & Protection for two years, I have seen the highs & the lows, the amazing recoveries & those who didn't make it. Now I just want to see the chimps in their sanctuary & I hope you will help me to help make that happen.
