Dear Friends,

As previously mentioned, end 2010  Dr Shirley Mc Greal contacted J.A.C.K. announcing the International Primate Protection League wished to support our small NGO.

The International Primate Protection League is a non profit organisation "dedicated to protecting the world's remaining primates, great and small".IPPL

Early 2010, the nursery group was offered a first night facility thanks to the kind support of the Sweden Chimpanzee Trust, the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance, our Wildlife Direct donorsLittle Jak Association,le Zoo de la Palmyre and SA steel company located in Lubumbashi: BSI STEEL.

A second facility was started in September 2010....

...but J.A.C.K. had to stop its construction : no new material could be bought as financial situation couldn't afford it .... We had lost any hope of seeing the works finished in 2010...

That's how I.P.P.L' s donation came to us as a miracle!!

Yes! Thanks to the very kind support of  I.P.P.L./US of  December 2010, all the works were finished by March 2011 and the little ones have since then been able to enjoy a bigger facility sheltering them at night but also providing protection during the pouring rains of the rainy season...

The infants of the nursery are extremely grateful to all the donors for having offered them a second facility and IPPL's support has been a dream coming true because it enabled J.A.C.K. in offering the chimp orphans the best conditions they deserved!!!
