Have you ever felt like your heart was going to break? That sensation when you see something you just can't imagine possible and you have no control over? That happened in the dusty back streets of Luxor, Egypt. Kim and her Aunt Julie, whilst on holiday, saw people struggling to feed their families and abusing their means to do so. Small underfed donkeys being beaten and suffering from neglect by owners who needed them so badly. What could be done?
Julie Wartenberg has always had a love for Egypt and strong interest in Egyptology, and kindly brought her Niece, Kim Taylor for various holidays to explore the country.
Kim Taylor was not really 'into' Egyptology, but was constantly looking at the condition of the working animals in the back streets of Luxor. So Kim and Julie devised a way to ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING about the things that they were seeing.
"In life we often see things that we would like to change, but to get the opportunity to totally change your life around and put your ideas into action is rare" ... Kim Taylor
We know the enemy faced by ACE every day, week after week is usually not intended cruelty. It is mostly ignorance. But to the poor working animals it is cruelty and we, through a combination of education, prevention & veterinary treatment are slowly stamping it out. Currently we see approximately 3,300 animals a month, but this can jump to 5,000 or more in bad times. ACE is a success story that can only be kept alive, as long as our supporters keep supporting.
ACE is an ever-growing, great team of professionals and volunteers, from all over the World that work towards the same goal - To relieve and prevent the suffering of the animals in Egypt.
The hospital is a charity and so all treatment for local people is completely free.
