The vet-room improvements

We wanted to thank all of you who supported us through WildlifeDirect to improve our vet-room (please check a previous post about that). We raised $672.49 which allowed us to buy most of the materials needed to replace the vet-room wooden door by a metallic one and add bars to the windows.

Here are the details on how we spent the money:

  1. 18 steel bars x $24.2 = $435.60
  2. 2 cement bags x$11.1 = $22.20
  3. Mason’s salary = $201.50

Total = $659.30 + bank fees 2% = $672.49

We managed to raise additional funds in Europe  to pay for additional materials as well as the welder’s salary and to buy metal trunks (thanks to our current vet Carole who personally donated the money for these). These are used to safely store all the medicines and veterinarian equipment. This is really important since in the bush there are many insects (termites and other nasty ones) and mice which can damage precious veterinary supplies.

 Our vet-room is a real “bush” vet-room and we hope to be able to improve it again in the future!

A huge thank you to all our supporters and a special one for Carole who did an amazing job!
