After the turbulence that has followed since the Taliban were handed back the power over Afghanistan on the 15th August 2021, the Nowzad charity has worked extremely hard to re-establish our operations in Kabul.
We are extremely proud of our staff who stayed behind and have continued through what has been an absolutely hellish transition period. They have looked after our donkeys and horses (plus David the cow and Jaja the goat) whilst we planned how to restart.
The whole world looked on in shock as Russia invaded its neighbour with horrific consequences for both the Ukrainian people and their animals.
Nowzad could not just look on what was unfolding, so via our social media channels we sought both financial and physical donations to do what we could in the worst affected areas of eastern Ukraine.
Thank you to everyone who donated and yelled from the rooftops to ensure that the Nowzad staff and our animals could be evacuated from Kabul last August, when the west literally abandoned Afghanistan and gave power back to a regime so many had sacrificed so much to keep at bay over the last 20 years.
Your determination and generosity saved lives.
