SPONSOR - FRANKY

Franky

March 6th, 2017 - Franky was found by one of our staff who was on leave on the North bank of the river. He was staying in a remote village when he came upon a donkey which he said was suffering a lot due to a severe injury to his eye. He emailed Heather late one night and begged her to help the donkey.

Transporting the donkey to our centre was very costly as it was such a distance away. It was also in the midst of political campaigning for elections so it was very difficult to find transport for him but we had no choice as he was in such a bad way. The donkey, named Franky after a Reggae singer, had injured his eye very badly and it had to be removed.

This was done successfully by some volunteer vets who were visiting and he made a good recovery. During his recovery, he became a big favourite with the staff and volunteers and became the yard pet. Heather then found her next dilemma when deciding which animals at the hospital were ready to return home. Franky was discussed and Heather found considerable resistance from the staff who made all sorts of excuses as to why he should not return home. They said it was too far and too expensive, that he would not get good veterinary treatment in such a remote location, it would be too difficult for him with one eye… Eventually they all admitted that they were really fond of him and just wanted him to stay with GHDT and they begged Heather to see if someone could sponsor his purchase. A lovely lady called Katrina Ellis purchased him and others made donations towards his care and keep but if you would like to help to cover his costs it would be much appreciated. Franky will be moving down to the new centre at Makasutu to be with Musa, the member of staff who rescued him. If you sponsor Franky, you would be very welcome to go and visit him.
