The Asswin Project for Donkeys and Other Animals in India is a UK registered charity which finances a healthcare programme for needy animals in and around the outskirts of New Delhi. It rescues and provides medical treatment to injured and sick working donkeys and horses, and also to street dogs and other needy animals.
The team in India, headed by Jean and Bob Harrison, work year round on every day of every week, and regularly visit the many construction sites, brick kilns, and so-called ‘slumdog’ encampments around New Delhi.
During these visits they give treatment and care to suffering donkeys, and at the same time offer practical help and advice to donkey owners and their families on effective animal husbandry.
They also respond to calls from the community, the police, and the fire service to help animals involved in road accidents, and have access to a veterinary service when needed
