Multiple earthquakes and disastrous weather conditions have left many of these animals without food, water or shelter – isolated in the deep snow, trapped in sub-zero temperatures and struggling to survive.

We’ve teamed up with The Donkey Sanctuary and have already sent urgent food supplies which will help those in the most desperate need but much more must be done.

With no sign of rising temperatures or improved conditions on the horizon, this is only the start of the rescue effort and with your support we will do everything we can to reach these poor stranded horses and donkeys.

Give today and help us bring warmth and care to this terrible situation.

*If donations exceed the amount needed for relief efforts, World Horse Welfare will use the generous donations for other emergencies to help horses in desperate need
