Project Report | Dec 31, 2020
You Gave Ujasiri a Safe Home

By Gregg Tully | Executive Director, Pan African Sanctuary Alliance

This year required courage from all of us. In October, infant chimpanzee Ujasiri was found by park rangers in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The helpless orphan was named Ujasiri because it means courage in Swahili.

Little Ujasiri was rushed to PASA member sanctuary Lwiro Primate Rehabilitation Center after being confiscated from the military in a conflict zone. He was dehydrated, underweight and infected with parasites.

Your support allowed dedicated sanctuary staff to save his life with urgent medical care. At first, Ujasiri would not play or groom, important natural behaviors for infant chimpanzees. The trauma he had experienced caused him to wake up panicked at night. But because of your help, he is making a full recovery. His appetite is stronger than ever (Ujasiri’s favorite snacks are peanuts, apples, grapes, and tuna!) and he has even been introduced to new chimpanzee friends. This would not have been possible without you!

Like Ujasiri, PASA member sanctuaries across Africa have had to summon courage to face this unexpected year: 2020 has been extremely tough. Your generosity has allowed the sanctuaries to survive this challenging time in history, allowing them to continue their extraordinary commitment to the animals in their care.

You kept Ujasiri safe and gave him a second chance at life. He and other rescued animals are receiving the care they need, even as the pandemic persists. Thank you for courageously standing by Ujasiri to help him and other orphaned apes and monkeys survive this year.

Best wishes,

Gregg Tully
