The Brooke is the UK’s, if not the world’s, leading working equine welfare charity, dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules in some of the world’s poorest communities. There are more than 100 million working horses, donkeys and mules worldwide. Through direct intervention and working with partners, they provide treatment to those animals most in need, as well as training and education to their owners and the wider community. The Brooke has already improved the quality of life for more than 2 million working equines and has an ambitious strategy to improve this figure.
The ALBORADA Trust has supported The Brooke since 2006 and its present commitment is £1m over four years to help with its important work in the brick kilns of Pakistan and the education of handlers in animal welfare.
