Korabiewice Animal Shelter, located in east-central Poland, is home to more than 500 animals including dogs, horses, cows, goats and pigs. In February 2012, the Polish branch of Viva! (Vegetarians’ International Voice for Animals) became owners of the shelter, and the animals have been enjoying plenty of food, shelter and medical care from the new loving staff and volunteers. Back in 2013, to help repair the damages to the facility caused by flooding, Supreme Master Ching Hai contributed EUR 5,000. (For detailed report, please refer to Magazine #212) Our Polish Association members have been providing vegan food for the shelter and helped plant trees during the past three years.
In June 2015, our compassionate Master again contributed US$13,000 to Korabiewice Animal Shelter to help improve the living conditions of the animals. The staff and volunteers at the shelter were extremely grateful for Master’s generosity, which allowed them to finish the most urgent construction work before winter, such as renovating and building rooms for cats, dogs and pigs, refurbishing the clinic, building a hospital and pathway, as well as installing electricity and floor heating.
We wish for the animals at the shelter to enjoy the rest of their lives in peace and health surrounded by the love from their human caregivers.
