Hello everyone, my name is Julie, I am a volunteer of an animal charity organisation call Companion Animal Federation CAF, the organisation was formed since 2002. Their mission is to save street dogs and cats, provide a home and medical care for these unlucky little furry friends in our society.
CAF possibly needing to close down due to financial crisis. 60 furry kids might become homeless, again.
Since the passing of Miss Ho, the founder of the organization, donations have plummeted to a tragic low of only 1/3 of what it used to receive. The sole reason that CAF still stands is all due to the dedication of the front-line staff - their selfless love to the animals, risking their own safety to come in to take care of their furry friends despite extreme weathers like typhoon signal 8.
Miss Chan - the person now in charge had taken over the burden of CAF just one week prior to Miss Ho's death. Miss Chan has been striving her utmost best to find funding and support for the animals at the shelter, as well as preparing all paperwork to re-open the shelter's business bank account. Unfortunately the donations are so insufficient that it is not even able to cover the shelter's daily expenses. Throughout this year, Miss Ho's inheritance was used as a foundation but the last penny was used last month. Facing an extreme urgent financial crisis, the future of CAF is bleak.
We are now calling out to every friend of CAF to continue supporting us and let the legacy of Miss Ho - to give a place of security and love to the animals who are lacking homes, live on. A little help goes a long way, solving the rent of the land, the medical fees and food for the animals, the staff's basic salaries and the shelter's monthly expenses. Whether it is an one off donation or continuous funding, it will be an enormous boost to our shelter. On behalf of all the animals living at CAF, we thank you sincerely for your generous help.
CAF 財困面臨倒閉，60 毛孩將無家可歸。
由於前負責人何小姐不幸離世，以致捐款數目大不如前，金額不足以往的三份一。CAF 至今仍能堅持下去，實有賴前線員工對毛孩不離不棄，甚至八號風球下仍不辭勞苦照顧牠們。現任負責人陳小姐，於何小姐臨终前不足一星期接下 CAF 這重任，並盡最大努力向各方好友求助，以爭取舍內貓狗的資源贊助；更著手整理所需文件作開回公司銀行户口之用。可惜，現有的捐款數目遠遠不足以維持 CAF 的日常開支，過去一年多更需要依賴何小姐的遺產作補助。但到上月，何小姐的幫助亦已用盡。面對財政困難，我們遇上如何營運下去的嚴峻考驗。
現呼籲各位一直支持 CAF 的各方好友繼續幫忙，延續何小姐最後遺願，讓毛孩有地方安享晚年。只要各人出一分力，集腋成裘，便能幫助 CAF 應付租金、醫療、糧食及員工基本薪金的每月開支。無論是一次過捐款或每月捐款，對我們的營運都有著極大幫忙。本會衷心感謝各位善心人士對 CAF 及毛孩的慷慨，謝謝。
