World Horse Welfare works in remote villages in Nepal, where horses, donkeys and mules are the only method of transport and are integral to communities. During the brick kiln season, owners use their horses to transport bricks to earn a living, and the illness or loss of the horse has a devastating impact on their families. World Horse Welfare’s project works with owners to improve their knowledge of horse care. Using a One Welfare approach, the charity also helps women earn an income by growing mushrooms to allow their horse a day of rest, and so better protect its health.
