About Our Business
A series of observations by the staff and manager at Al Sorat Farm in Egypt led to the start of Rural Wellness Initiative Egypt more than 10 years ago. We provide the best animal rescue efforts and educational equine veterinary outreach services to farmers. Led by a very supportive hierarchy and overseen by our district leader, called Omda, we work daily with approximately 600 local families in small villages throughout the area to bring awareness, education, medicine, services, and support. The goal of our team of farm staff and volunteers is to minimize illness and accidents through preventative medical practices.
Riding horses through the farming areas around the farm, we noticed that the physical conditions of animals in the countryside needed improvement. Many animals were thin and donkeys had long scars, indicating a need for the control of parasites, such as habronema. While our farm staff was researching inexpensive ways to treat and feed horses and donkeys, we learned that many farmers didn't know how to keep their animals healthy. We knew we had to come up with a way to provide the education and treatment these animals needed.
