Main aim of the charity

To be able to expand and help more to rescue homeless abandoned stray animals in streets of Qatar To have shelter and food.

How the employee got involved and why

I started 4 years ago by feeding stray cats and dogs and eventually started to get involved with rescue. Animals are like humans they are living creatures they have life. Seeing them helpless and no one cares about their survival for me is really heartbreaking. I will continue what I have started, I joined last year in this competition unfortunately I was not able to win for this cause. I told myself I will not stop in doing these things that I feel a person like me can make a difference on the lives of those stray animals that no one cares about them in this country but just like me or the rest who are into volunteering for this kind of cause. These animals are just depending on us for them to survive their everyday battle on the streets.

What work does the employee do for charity?

I feed stray cats and help in rescuing stray dogs that were abandoned and lost on the streets. Especially when the pandemic started there were a lot of stray dogs and cats on the street that were abandoned. During the lockdown no one was able to reach them so I had to post in social media groups and other rescue teams whoever may be able to help as it is heartbreaking to see them under 50 degrees without food and water on the street. Industrial area was closed under lockdown for 3 months where there are packs of stray dogs and cats were there. I cannot just sit and do nothing while they are starving and thirsty but I needed to do whatever I can for them to survive.
