World Animal Day 2023 06 October 2023 Wednesday 4th October was World Animal Day 2023 and it was a busy one for Nowzad teams this year! Our vets in Kabul spent the day at one of Kabul’s brick kilns vaccinating lots of working horses and donkeys there, providing free water troughs and even building portable stables to offer some protection to the animals from the sun’s relentless heat.
