CIWY's Christmas Wish

Why we need your help

CIWY’s Christmas Wish…

 [Castellano abajo]

Communidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY) represents the communion of the sun, moon and stars. For 25 years, we have been working to rescue animals from the black market in Bolivia and offer them a second chance at life. Due to their traumatic pasts, most of the animals under our care can never be released and so we offer them a home for life. We are a non-governmental organisation which receives no state funding. 80% of all of our funding comes from volunteers who offer their time and support at our three rescue centres and 20% comes from individual donors. Even with this wonderful support, we are in desperate need of financial support to be able to continue to care for the over 300 animals currently housed at our centres.

This year, by way of an inspiring advent calendar, we want to show you just what makes CIWY unique. Throughout December, you will discover 24 stories – of people and animals – who make up the CIWY family.

Every day, you will have the opportunity to support CIWY and its work. Every donation, large or small, is important for us to be able to continue moving forward. Each contribution will help us to protect animals – giving them a safe home for life. Each contribution will help us to fight the illegal trade and raise awareness via vital educational work.

To save the life of one animal will not change the world, but it will change that animal’s entire world.

Nuestro deseo de Navidad…

CIWY significa «Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi»: la comunión de Sol, Estrella y Luna. Hace 25 años que trabaja en el rescate de animales silvestres del mercado **** y les ofrece una segunda oportunidad de vida (sabiendo que la gran mayoría de estos animales no podrán volver a ser liberados, como consecuencia del impacto producido por los humanos). Es una Organización Boliviana No Gubernamental que no recibe apoyo económico por parte del Estado. El 80% de los recursos de los 3 Centros de Custodia de Fauna Silvestre que CIWY maneja, provienen de voluntarios y el 20% de donaciones de personas individuales y/u organizaciones. Aun esto no es suficiente para cubrir todas las necesidades de atención a los animales.

Este año, a través de un calendario de Adviento, se presentará lo que hace que CIWY sea única. Descubrirán 24 caras e historias que forman parte de CIWY, las personas que trabajan y los animales que se cuidan.

Todos los días tendrán la oportunidad de apoyar a CIWY y su trabajo. Cada donación, grande o pequeña, es importante para poder seguir adelante, protegiendo a los animales, dándoles una buena calidad de vida y sensibilizando a las personas.

"Al rescatar un animal no cambias el mundo, pero si cambias el mundo de este animal."
