Dear Animal Kind International:

From all Touch of Life family we want to thank you so much for your great help, support and your kind fund to help us improve our animal conditions. We are so grateful to you.

We received from your organization total funds of 500U$ almost equal 9000 LE. We bought 25 pack of cat’s vaccination 25x160LE= 4000 LE and pack of dog’s vaccination 5x150LE= 750 LE.

We did repair of an area in the dog play ground which is lower than the other land so water from nearby drains into the area, it becomes wet and so the dogs can’t sleep there, and it is a source of humidity that will attract insects, such as ticks, and cause diseases. We isolated this piece of land and covered with cement so the dogs can sleep and be safe from cold weather and rain in winter and away from heat and sun in summer time. This area cost us 1010 LE.

AKI funds covered the cost of raising this area and laying concrete


A comfortable, dry area for the dogs to sleep-stays cool in the summer, warm in the winter

We bought a water heater to have warm water for bathing our dogs, cats, donkeys as well as for our workers, the water heater and its connections and some repair of water pump total cost was 1775 LE.
