In the theatre of war there are many forgotten victims – least of all the animals
From the valiant horses and mules who carried medical supplies, food, water and ammunition in the trenches, to the intrepid messenger pigeons and the gas detecting canaries. Animals have always been a courageous and esteemed comrade to man in times of war.
Now operating in Afghanistan once more and continuing with our mission in Ukraine (during Russia’s illegal and frightening invasion), the Nowzad charity knows only too well how human conflict can cause so much pain to a creature whose only fault is to be born in the wrong place. It is a gruelling life for an animal in a war zone and often the struggle to merely survive is lost.
Through remembering the fallen we can make a difference to the future.
This year, please consider wearing your Nowzad Poppy with pride alongside your British Legion poppy and honour the animals of war, who had no choice but to be there.
We will honour them all.
The Nowzad poppy badge is an elegant 28mm solid metal pin badge that is polished gold in colour. The unique 3 leafed poppy design with yellow dog paw encircled by a blue ring at the centre, is a fitting tribute to the brave people of Ukraine and its forgotten animals of war.
Following the limited edition poppy released in 2015; we annually issue a new poppy depicting the year, making it a fabulous collector’s item.
Currently we are limiting 10 poppies per order.
The Nowzad charity would like to remind you there may be delays with your order due to the proposed UK planned postal service strikes.
