Overview of 2018.

2018 has been yet another good year for the Nandi Charity Shop. Shop volunteers and all those working behind the scenes have done an excellent job in maintaining our income levels, allowing us not only to continue supporting the street animals but also to expand our support in a number of areas. We also want to thank all those who have provided financial donations and of course donations of clothes, bric-a-brac and furniture all of which have allowed us to continue our animal support.

In 2018 we have again managed to achieve our target of spending over 70% of our income on the animals within our area..

We are pleased to report that we have been able to secure the services of a new vet in Sagres. This has facilitated the expansion of our services in that area.

Some notable achievements during 2018 have been:

  • .Increasing the financial support to several new cat colonies in the Lagos area.
  • Offering additional support to the welfare of animals throughout our area.
  • Continued support of the ferry cat community at the “cat hotel” near the marina.
  • .Providing additional and replacement fencing for the sanctuaries in Vila do Bispo and Gaudeloupe.
  • Continued monthly animal food and vetinary support for the following sancturies Bamboo, Cadela Carlota, Vila do Bispo, and AEZA.
  • 2 animal sterilisation campaigns.
  • Continued support of the Vila do Bispo Trap/Neuter/Return initiative for ferrel cats.
  • Continued support to the local human community with clothes and bric-a-brac donations that were not sold in the shops. In particular we were able to donate a large commercial cooker to the “Mustard Seed” who provide meals for the homeless and those facing hard times.
  • We have continued to send non-saleable clothes donations to Africa to support the various foreign initiatives on that continent as well as continuing to support the local orphanages.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the continued support of our dedicated volunteer staff who give up their time to run the shops, collect furniture and liaise with the customers and vets to provide our services. The Nandi Charity Shop also wants to thank our valued customers without whom none of the above would be possible.
