The story of Samson and Ben Hur

A short while ago I wrote about two poor, severely abused donkeys who had only ever known interaction with humans to be violent. I said how it was a difficult operation but we were working on securing their rescue.


They are both now being kept in a temporary safe place by our very special Qalqilya man, Khaled, until we are able to collect them and take them back to our sanctuary in Qalansuwa.


We have named them Ben Hur and Samson. Samson is already gelded but a few days ago we went to perform the op on Ben Hur. Our dear volunteer vet, Dr Nour Kalabani, met us at the border crossing and we did the operation right there, under a lemon tree.

Later that day, dear Ben Hur walked with Khaled and his horse and cart and another horse, back to their temporary safe place, Samson was already there and seeming to sense each other's past suffering, they bonded straightaway...

Please support our vital rescue work...


Thank you...
