The Brooke Hospital for Animals in Sayeda Zeinab. On arrival in Egypt to 1930 Dorothy Brooke, the wife of a British Army Major General, was determined to find the surviving warhorses of the British, Australian and American forces that, after the end of WWI, were sold into a life of hard labor. Appalled at their condition, Dorothy wrote a letter to the Morning Post (later, the Daily Telegraph) exposing the animals' plight. She successfully raised £20,000 as a result of the public reaction's to her letter and within three years she had purchased 5K ex-warhorses, and founded in 1934 the Old War Horse Memorial Hospital in  Cairo with promise of free veterinary  care for the city's working horses and donkeys, giving birth for the Brooke Hospital for Animals which today is an international animal welfare charity dedicated to improving the lives of working donkeys, horses and mules with operations in Africa, Asia, LatAm and the Middle East and employing 900 staff worldwide #brookehospital #horses #donkeys #mules #hospital #veterinarian #animalhospital #historicbuildings #neighborhood #sayedazainab #streets #cities #stories #history #impact #animalrights #freevet #equines #cairo #thisiscairo #cairoonfoot #experiencecairo #historicplaces #picoftheday #photooftheday
