The Brooke

Culture

There are 100 million horses, donkeys and mules hard at work around the world. They are the engines that power the world’s poorest communities. An estimated 600 million people rely on the labor of these stoic animals to survive. Luckily these voiceless animals have an advocate in The Brooke. Celebrating its 80th anniversary, The Brooke, the UK’s leading overseas equine welfare charity, is dedicated to alleviating the suffering of horses, donkeys and mules working in the poorest parts of the world and improving the livelihoods of the people who depend on them. www.thebrooke.org
