Lauren our nurse is off on her travels …Can you help her raise money for an awesome cause?
Lauren one of our RVNs is off to the amazing Thailand in November!. No she’s not going for a relaxing sunny holiday she’s off to work at animal sanctuary on Koh Mak Island for 3 weeks!!!
We are all unbelievably proud of Lauren for taking on such a task and we know she is going to help make a huge difference to the lives of many of the animals that inhabit Koh Mak while she is there…..BUT we don’t want to just stop at helping these animals while she is there we want the help to continue when she comes home…and yes unfortunately Lauren you do have to come home we NEED you here too!.
Lauren leaves the UK on Thursday 1st of November and arrives in Koh Mak on the 3rd of November she has a looonnggg three days travelling and she’s going at it alone!
The Island of Koh Mak is located in an archipelago of 50+ Islands on the far eastern seaboard of Thailand; it is home to lots of strays and wildlife.
The clinic Lauren will be working at as a nursing volunteer, cares for and provides help and treatment for the many strays on the Island, it also provides care for the animals belonging to the Temples, and for pets belonging to the inhabitants and those from the neighbouring island of Cambodia.
The clinic is a non profiting organisation and relies solely on volunteers, the owners and local monks to run it. They fund the whole thing themselves and rely on donations so they can provide the much needed care the animals require.
This not only improves the quality of life for all of the animals they treat but also helps educate their owners on basic animal care.
The animal centre opened in 2015 after a husband and wife visited the island on holiday, they were so taken aback by the help that was needed for the animals they decided to return and open a clinic. The clinic was finally finished in 2017!
Of course we think Lauren is doing an amazing selfless gesture and we are behind her 100%, we hope it will change the lives of many of the animals in Koh Mak and we need your help.
Lauren has set herself the task of raising some much needed funds that this clinic is desperate for. As a practice we will be donating many of the veterinary supplies the clinic needs so Lauren can take them with her, but Lauren also wants to raise as much money as she can, to donate to the clinic so they continue this care.
We know each and every one of our clients will see how amazing this is and we are asking if you can donate any money no matter how small, the clinic and animals of Koh Mak will appreciate every penny and it will be put to good use not only when she visits but for years to come.
