Largest ivory confiscation in Lubumbashi!

Posted by J.A.C.K. Sanctuaire on Sunday, August 28, 2016, In : Illegal trade

Supplies

Posted by J.A.C.K. Sanctuaire on Tuesday, August 9, 2016, In : picture of the day 

PICTURE OF THE DAY - Our sanctuary survives through donations only. This means that every donation counts and is extremely vital to the wellfare of our orphans.

Today, we received banana trunks (about 500kgs) and local eggplants(250 kgs) from a farm located 2 hours away from us. We pay for transport but get all the vegetables for free. Today's donation represents 3 days of food (200kgs/day) which means we are already looking for additional donations to end this week...
