Animal Webaction visited the site 04 August 2022 and confirms the situation described below.

1. In Morocco, Corinne has almost no food left to feed the 500 street cats in her care... They will starve if no one intervenes!

%%%

"At the moment, there is an avalanche of births and abandonments of cats in the streets of Essaouira, even pedigree cats bought in pet shops! They are everywhere, and I am almost out of kibble... The poor cats live a hellish life in the streets: most of them are sick, many are thin, especially the kittens, and the rest have diarrhoea problems because of the waste they ingest in the dustbins... That's not all: other dangers threaten them, they get hit by cars, beaten by people in the street, or simply poisoned... 

I'm discouraged because I struggle every day to find food for the cats in the streets and in my shelter, but it's becoming impossible to manage everything alone... I've been rationing them for 6 months already, and now I don't have any kibble left in stock at all! Between the pandemic and the war in Ukraine which has led to inflation, I need help to buy kibble! Contrary to popular belief, I do not receive any help from the state or local authorities... If this campaign fails, I will be forced to stop distributing kibble to the street cats, and the cats will live on garbage alone... That would be a disaster!"

2. Heavily handicapped by deafness, Spank depends entirely on Corinne for his food: this kibble campaign is vital to him!

###

"Spank is a 4 year old cat who has been living on the streets since he was born. Unfortunately, I don't have any more space at the shelter to take him in... So I have to continue to take care of him and feed him on the street. As he is deaf, he is very wild, and he has a lot of trouble finding food on his own! If I don't have any more food to bring him, he will be in serious danger... He will have to find food in the rubbish bins and will run the risk of being poisoned, of becoming ill, or, attracted by the smell of food, will be mistreated by the inhabitants of the town by going to meet them... This kibble campaign must absolutely succeed!"

3. Corinne also takes in 250 very fragile cats at her shelter, who are also threatened by the lack of kibble.

%%%

"The number of cats in my shelter has tripled since the pandemic! With all the reports I receive daily of sick or injured cats, mothers with their kittens, or orphaned kittens, my shelter serves as a dispensary for more than 250 street cats: I care for them, feed them, offer them a home and, above all, protection! Although I train "neighbourhood sponsors" (volunteers to care for street cats), there are too few of us to manage the growing number of new cats in need... The budget allocated to kibble and food is therefore also increasing, even though I have no salary and very few donations... I am overwhelmed!

At the moment, I don't know what to do, the end of the month is terrible... I send and post requests for help to buy bags of kibble, but I don't receive enough donations. I don't sleep anymore because I'm afraid of tomorrow, what will they eat? How will they survive on an empty stomach? The neighbourhood sponsors also rely on me to feed the cats in their neighbourhoods but if I don't get help soon, I won't be able to do anything for them... I am pessimistic for the future because I don't know where or who to turn to anymore, this campaign has to succeed, I have no other solution!"

4. Completely blind, little Judith depends on Corinne for food: without kibble, she is doomed!

###

"Judith is a 2 year old cat who was given to me by a local sponsor 5 months ago. She became blind due to untreated coryza... I took her under my wing because I would never leave a blind cat in the street, it would be doomed! After taking Judith to the vet to be spayed, the vet had to sew her eyelids shut to avoid the intense pain she had to endure... At the beginning, she was very wild and could not get used to her handicap at all. If she is starting to calm down a little today, she is still entirely dependent on me for food! Without kibble, I'm afraid she'll get worse. She needs me!"

5. The increase in the price of raw materials and the drastic decrease in donations prevent Corinne from buying kibble to feed the cats she looks after alone!

###

"I am demoralised, I don't know how to finance all the expenses of the shelter. I am taking in more and more cats while receiving fewer and fewer donations. I'm dipping into my savings, but the prices keep going up, and my bank account is getting emptied without ever filling up... Many neighbourhood sponsors come to me asking for kibble, but I have to say no, to my great regret, because without donations or sponsorships, I am unable to buy kibble again!

If I don't find regular donors or the help of a foundation soon, I will have to start reducing my actions, stop saving cats. My heart breaks at the thought of having to do this! As many people have not found a job following the pandemic, they abandon their animals or stop feeding those in the streets... There are no associations or subsidies on the spot, I am alone in trying to find money: the sinews of war... You know, I would rather spend time with my cats than spend all my time and energy worrying and looking for money... But I have no other solution, I am exhausted, I need your help!"

6. Corinne isn't asking for money, only kibble to keep the cats from starving.

###

"Since 2016, when I opened my shelter in Essaouira, I have trained "neighbourhood sponsors" to care for cats in the street, and I have set up sterilisation campaigns. I am at the same time: carer, financial, commercial, marketing assistant, and manager of the shelter. This is often difficult as I have no volunteers to help me at the shelter, or even to help me transport the animals to the vet. However, if there is one thing I am proud of, it is that I have contributed to the following awareness among the local people: cats are living beings and not objects! My goal is to improve the quality of life of cats and their relationship with humans, so that they can finally live in harmony and with respect.

Unfortunately, at the moment, mentalities do not change quickly enough, as I am still fighting alone! Of course, there are the "neighbourhood sponsors" whom I welcome and who are very numerous in Essaouira compared to other cities in Morocco. They are present and do their daily work in the field, but that is not enough... I only receive requests for help, but very few donations, and when I can't respond favourably, my stomach is in knots every time... I'm exhausted, demoralised, I can't see a solution..."

7. If this campaign succeeds, Corinne will not receive money but 920 kg of kibble, delivered from Animal Webaction's logistics platform in Morocco.

Animal Webaction has a logistics platform in Morocco, which enables us to intervene quickly and deliver kibble.

8. The number of cats in distress is increasing as Corinne's few supporters have reached the end of their means: Corinne needs our help to get kibble!

"I am exhausted and worn out! Without help, all my actions will have to stop... At the moment, I have very few new donors and when I post requests for help online, the results are so meagre that I am depressed. I would like to be able to count on new people, but at the moment I am contacted more for help requests than for sponsorship proposals. How can I manage a budget of expenses (kibble, care, vaccinations, sterilisations, logistics, transport...) on the basis of donations that I do not receive?

I would like all the cats in Essaouira to be sterilised and adopted, but at the moment I have very few adoption requests, and many sick or disabled cats, and no one to help me finance sterilisation. The sponsors of the street cats help to adopt many kittens or cats... But unfortunately, many of them are then abandoned again, because of the post-covid economic misery in Morocco. Without permanent help, I already know that one day I won't be able to do anything for them... I will be forced to stop feeding, rescuing, and distributing bags of kibble. My cats are counting on your precious help..."

9. Campaigns launched on Animal Webaction often fail.

When a campaign fails, Animal Webaction cannot deliver the products. The beneficiary doesn't receive anything and the buyers are refunded. 

10. In Morocco, donors are scarce, and there are no foundations or subsidies. It is very difficult to find funding for kibble, many cats are left to starve on the street!
