There are many welfare organisations on the island that do incredible work alleviating the suffering of so many animals. In October, Mary Anastasi of Cyprus Voice for Animals, organised an award ceremony at the Presidential Palace, Nicosia, in recognition of their services to animal welfare.
The Donkey Sanctuary (Cyprus) is the only organisation solely dedicated to the welfare of donkeys and mules here and so we were thrilled when we were invited to attend.
We were also honoured to be presented with an award for our work by the wife of the President of Cyprus, Mrs Andri Anastasiades. The First Lady is shown giving the plaque to The Donkey Sanctuary (Cyprus) Country Manager and European Welfare Manager, Judy Welsman.
Our congratulations go to all the other organisations who were also recognised and to Cyprus Voice for Animals organising a wonderful evening.
