Mighty Animal Rescue Team in India Battling Epic Flood | Care2 Causes
For some villages, the rescuers from APOWA are the very first aid they’ve seen, even though we’re now two weeks into the disaster. Having been a part of emergency relief operations in Latin America, I am all too familiar with this scenario. You truly can’t imagine what it’s like to hand a family a 40 pound sack of dog food knowing that the adults and their children are likely to eat the kibble alongside their pets because they can’t bear the endless wait for help from relief agencies. To watch animals slowly die of starvation and diarrhea, well, it leaves a scar that never heals and while I can’t be in India this week to help with my own two hands, I do believe there’s something equally significant I can do to help.
