SPONSOR - JAN

Jan

May 22nd, 2016 - Recently, most unusually, we were asked to take back a project donkey named Jan who had become seriously unmanageable. Project donkeys are given to families too poor to buy their own donkey, though they are still owned by GHDT and receive regular welfare checks.

We were curious to find out why his behaviour had changed as Jan had gone to his family almost nine years ago and had been as good as gold. The family member who cared for Jan was quite severely disabled but could handle him easily and the pair made a wonderful team. Unfortunately the carer had recently moved to the capital, leaving poor Jan behind. It seems that due to the stress of losing his friend, Jan had demonstrated his feelings in the only way he knew how and became quite unmanageable. The powerful emotional bonds that animals form with each other and with their humans are seriously underestimated and this is particularly true with donkeys.

Happily Jan is now back at GHDT and though he was initially a bit of a handful, he is now calm and well behaved. Now that we have realised what a sensitive chap he is, he will stay with us for the rest of his life. If anyone would like to sponsor him, please let us know. It is touching and humbling to witness such loyalty and devotion from this little chap.
