Nicky Stevens Speaks About International Aid Effort
8:11am 7th February 2010
A woman from Haddenham has started an international organisation to look after animals in foreign countrys.
International Aid for the Protection and Welfare of Animals was the idea of Nicky Stevens.
She says the project is focussing on animals in Borneo:
"We have just returned from our last visit during which time we managed to put a stop to the dog pound that was due to be built which was a huge success given the awful conditions dogs are forced to live in throughout similar pounds in Malaysia and we have instead been offered this land as part of our humane solution.
"We also met with government officials who are open to us discussing ways forward with all of the districts of Sabah and lastly the Veterinary Department who have invited us to review the animal welfare laws in the country"
