Hello animal lovers!
I am running this campaign on behalf of the Sohayko Animal charity which is a non profit organisation in Turkey based in Istanbul. They are a multi city organisation which regularly crosses cities to pick up the most injured animals in dire need of medical care. Turkey is well known for not being a country where animal rights have been implemented. The animals there are barely looked after and regularly run over or left to starve. This charity does absolutely amazing work with no expenses spared which I have seen first hand when visiting Istanbul. Their motto is never put an animal down, they strive to do their absolute best and treat all furry babies that they pick up. Currently they are well known in Turkey but not so much to European countries. I know my European animal lovers can help!! Just £1 stretches to 7 Turkish lira so your pound goes a long way in Turkey. Just 5 lira buys a 1kg pack of dry food which goes a long way. This charity runs an animal sanctuary, it’s their own it’s been visited and all animals who have been treated are NOT released back into the streets to be neglected again. They happily live at the sanctuary and ads go out for them to find their forever home. To see the amazing work they do please visit their Instagram page: SohaykoDernegi to see for yourself why I am so passionate about helping them raise the costs to continue doing the work that they do.
Sohayko is currently campaigning further to get animal rights laws passed in Turkey. Currently there is no real punishment for intentionally killing an animal. There is simply a fine and you get released. Sohayko run protests to get this underway and to encourage people to understand animals and care for them the way we do in Europe. All animals deserve an amazing life and to be loved and cared for. They do not deserve to be out on the streets. This is our duty as human beings to protect them and love them. So please everyone, spare £1 and help Sohayko continue to do their work and protect the animals in Turkey
