Health Clinics

Currently, we conduct mobile clinics in 15 brick factories of Lalitpur and have plans to extend our programme to 20 bricks factories of Dhading and 5 brick factories of Kavre in 2017. With the beginning of the brick season, we start our treatment by vaccinating and treating the equines of the factories. Keeping sustainability in mind, we use these treatment sessions as an opportunity to train handlers and owners on issues such as wound management and preventive measures. In order to reduce the chances of sickness and injuries, we also distribute proper harness and saddles to the owners. According to data from our 2015-2016 annual report, there has been more than 55% decrease in wounds of working equines after coming to our working area.
