Summary

We need to replace surgery equipment. Khayelitsha is Africa's largest township on the outskirts of one of the most visited & spectacular tourist destinations in the world - Cape Town. This township used to have dying animals almost everywhere you looked, but today it's a very different story! Now, after 20 000 sterilization procedures & 1000's of other surgeries too, our anaesthetic machine has finally gone heaven. With your support we can replace equipment & purchase veterinary medication.

Challenge

Despite Africa's largest township being just a hop, skip and jump away from a booming tourist hub, this vast and impoverished community of approximately 3.6 million people, doesn't benefit from the tourism sector. The township was established as a result of forced removals during the apartheid years and many essential services, including veterinary services and animal population control was denied to this vast community. SA.MAST Animal Clinic is addressing this problem - but we need help.

Solution

Ten years ago, many said: "Its a hopeless situation." We thought differently. Massive change is evident because of our CONSISTENT sterilisation, primary treatment & humane education programmes - plus hospital for the sick and injured too. Khayelitsha doesn't occupy first place for 'most violent township in SA' anymore. We're certain that offering this diverse and vast community a practical outlet for the expression of compassionate & responsible behaviour has got something to do with it!

Long-Term Impact

Violent crime, particularly against woman and children has reached epidemic proportions in the City of Cape Town. But if you've grow up caring about your dog or cat, you're far less likely to hurt a human being. The people of Khayelitsha want a better tomorrow and for this to happen tourism, leading to small business development, needs to flourish. A healthy & happy animal population with caring guardians contributes towards good tourist experiences and economic development.
