THIS ONE GOOD REASON WHY THE ASSWIN PROJECT IS TRYING TO HELP THE WORKING DONKEYS IN INDIA. HOW THE POOR CREATURE HAD RECEIVED THE HORRENDOUS WOUND IS NOT KNOWN BUT THE DAMAGE WAS DOWN TO THE SKULL AND THE FLESH WAS BEING EATEN AWAY BY MAGGOTS!!!!!!!
NASTY BUT TRUE AND WE DON'T EXPECT ANY OF OUR SUPPORTERS ON BLOG OR FACEBOOK TO "LIKE" THIS ONE
.Since The Asswin Project moved into the shelter provided by the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon almost 3 years ago, the surrounding rural area has become subjected to urbanisation with construction sites
going on everywhere. The result is that donkeys are being used at the sites and there are more and more cases of sickness and injuries to them. Over the pas t 3 weeks 4 donkeys have had to be admitted to the shelter for medical care. One had severe colic caused by a blockage in the rectum. Luckily the team managed to remove the blockage which was as big as tennis ball and made up of polythene, string and bits of wood. The donkey was relieved of its pain and its life was saved
The second case was a 5 months old female donkey which had been attacked by feral dogs and had suffered nasty wounds at the base of her ears and to tops of her legs. The team duly treated and dressed the wounds and administered necessary antibiotics..
Following on from our post on 12 April.we are able to announce that The Asswin Project was featured in the UK newspaper THE TIMES on 15 April ( check the internet TIMES page under "Delhi donkeys find a friend in retired Essex dinner lady".
The Project mourns the death of Dr S K Chawla, a diagnostic technician who was arue friend since Jean and Bob first came to help the donkeys in 1998. Our respects do out to Dr. Chawla's wife and his family.
Attached are photos of needy donkeys taking rest and good food at the shelter
Following on from our post in January here are a few photos of severe cases which needed hospitalisation
so that their wounds could be attended to on a daily basis in a clean environment and they could rest and have good food.
