OIPA Cameroon is creating a kinder and more humane future by teaching young children about animal welfare and environmental protection.
OIPA Cameroon recently had the opportunity to educate the public about the proper treatment of working equines. This small-scale educational project aimed to pass on a message of compassion and caring for animals to present and future generations.
The project’s massive turn out demonstrated the power of education and how human ignorance has led to suffering for many dogs in rural communities. The OIPA team has done something very good for this community and potentially saved the lives of people, children and dogs from a terrible disease.
