Zoo animals saved from starvation thanks to kind hearted people

Animals in a Ukrainian zoo were saved from starvation thanks to thousands of big hearted people. Kharkiv zoo has been established over a century ago and recently it has such big financial problems that it could not afford to feed its animals.

According to goodnewsnetwork.org  thousands of people from Kharkiv and from all over Ukraine came to the zoo over three days to bring food for the animals and money so the zoo can function properly. Due to donations and ticket sales, the zoo managed to get around 124,159 dollars. The zoo officials have said  “To our call of ‘Save the Kharkov Zoo!’ it seems like the entire city responded. This weekend our zoo saw huge lines for tickets, tons of food, and lots of positive emotions. Your help and support for our neighbors on planet Earth revealed the compassion, kindness, and love that will always be part of humanity.” Donations came thanks to Kate Wolf, the founder of Lotus Elephant Sanctuary and an American expat living in Ukraine, who both set up online fundraisers.

    As you can see from this article, the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization is speaking for peace on behalf of the zoo animals and Mother Nature. We are protecting the animals from dying of starvation and the situation is immediate and dire. Please help these animals by donating what you can so that we can keep them provided with food and medical supplies during this time of crisis in the Ukraine.
