Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Wednesday, 18 November 2020 is Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land.
Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land (SHADH) is a British registered charity that cares for working and abandoned donkeys in Israel and the Palestinian Territories.
The organization, which was set up in 2000, runs a 4-acre (16,000 m2) donkey sanctuary near the Israeli town of Netanya. At the beginning of 2017, SHADH was home to more than 230 donkeys.
Safe Haven also runs a programme of free veterinary clinics for working donkeys, mules and horses on both sides of the Palestinian border. The team regularly visits towns and villages where they offer free veterinary care, advice on tooth and hoof care, harnessing and education and support for the owners.
In June the charity opened a permanent clinic in the Palestinian city of Nablus, open 7 days a week and is treating around 200 working donkeys, mules and horses every week.
The charity's Royal Patron is HRH Princess Alexandra the Hon Lady Ogilvy KG GCVO. Patrons are the Rt Hon the Earl of Stockton, broadcaster Des Lynam, actor Anthony Head, author and journalist Julie Burchill and former MP and author Ann Widdecombe.
A press release from Animal Friends Insurance reports that company's £1,000 donation each month towards the running cost of the new clinic.
