I am raising this for my mother and my father that are soon to be 70 and 63 years old.
The father , is the most honest person I have met in life, that has put all his energy and time into saving animals(he is a vet). He had treated millions of animals thought of his life and had always helped the ones that couldn't afford the treatments of their beloved pets. Due to his hard work and him getting older he started having troubles with his back, and hands.
My mother, is an amazing woman that had spent all her life picking up the animals from the streets and nourishing them. She is turning 70 this year.
They live in a flat (4th floor), and take care of 2 dogs , 2 cats, and a monkey that they have saved from the evil one( animal trade). They do hold an animal shelter and my dad puts every single penny there( medication, food, land rent). For those that don't know the salaries in Uzbekistan are not more than 300$ and my mom's retirement money is 25$ per month.
I am a non-native English teacher , so u probably know that we get double less or even triple of what natives earn. I do send money monthly to family.
Here, I am not asking for urgent donations, or am not asking for judgement. All, I am asking, if you can skip 5$ burger and full fill somebody's dream, why not take an action.
I am hoping to see both of my parents less stressed, doing what they like and not dealing with the government rules( the number of animals u r allowed to keep at home, etc). It would be great to see them having a piece of small land where they can take care of the animals and where they still can contribute their knowledge, love, and care while they are alive. Obviously, I can't afford it nơ, i ll nêd moẻ than 10 years , but they are getting old and I want to see them happy.
Calling all the people out there , who are able to afford to make somebody's life better, no matter what, either it's health condition, child care, education, house, etc... - do it.
Stay safe everyone during this time!
