2019/20 MENA WINNER - Ronak Hamawendi

  • By Ronak Hamawendi · Iraq, MENA

At the age of 11, Ronak rescued a stray dog and she’s been passionate about helping animals ever since. At the weekends, she volunteers at the Animals of Kurdistan shelter which cares for dogs rescued from living in harsh conditions on the streets. At the shelter, the dogs receive food and medical care, and – just as importantly – love and kindness.
