At Equatours we are passionate about responsible travel and strive to ‘do our bit’ to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
Our love of travel has taken us across the world, and while the majority of our experiences have been positive, we have witnessed extreme poverty in some of the countries we have visited, and those heartbreaking pictures will remain imprinted in our memories forever.
Choosing a charity to support is a difficult task, there are so many worthy causes to choose from that choosing just one doesn’t seem fair, but we have eventually decided to go with something that is close to our own hearts, and endeavour to raise funds for African Tails, an organisation that works tirelessly to curb the over-population and suffering of abused and neglected township dogs on the streets of South Africa’s informal settlements.
It is estimated that over 4 million South Africans live in informal settlements across the country, and while many try to provide a dog with love, they do not have the means to feed them and pay for veterinary bills – this is where African Tails step in.
By funding weekly/monthly sterilisations for those who cannot afford it, educating the urban public, rescuing and re-homing dogs who are injured, ill, or no longer wanted, and feeding those fit and healthy enough to make it on their own, African Tails is a truly wonderful organisation, and you can do your bit to help.
