Please donate today to help us install our own water system! The impact this will have on the sanctuary and our beautiful rescued chimps is huge! Share this post and donate now!

Our countdown to Giving Day is almost complete!


Each day, we rely on local businesses to donate 200kg of fresh fruit and vegetables to feed our 33 chimps – a big ask!

To reduce this dependency, we had on our onsite greenhouse providing almost 50kg of organic produce a day 🌱


As you can see, without water this is no longer an option for us. Please help us to help them 💫




💦With just 3 DAYS until GIVING DAY, we present another way we need access to water at the sanctuary- a reason you may not have expected!💦

As a small NGO, we don’t have the big bucks to spend on major works at the sanctuary. So we support small business run by local Congolese. This means the money goes straight to the families, empowering the people and utilising their skills. Oh, and you guessed it – we need access to water to provide the materials for this important work, such as cement!

Our devoted staff at J.A.C.K. need access to water for their own hydration and hygiene! Working with the chimps is hot and hard work, and they need water to drink and to wash their uniforms each day.

Our count down continues…

3. Sanitation – 5 days until Giving Day
Our staff at J.A.C.K. need access to water to ensure that our chimps always have a nice, clean bed with fresh hay every night to keep them comfy and to safeguard against disease.
Our countdown continues… Here is another way we use water at J.A.C.K. and why we need your help to install a water system at the sanctuary!
2. Washing food – 6 days until Giving Day
Our rescued chimps at J.A.C.K. are lucky to receive daily about 200kg of fresh food donated partly from local businesses (thank you)! We always make sure that the fruit and veg are thoroughly washed before being chopped up and served to the chimps, which can be quite a big task!

GIVING DAY FOR APES is coming up on Tuesday, October 15th! A way to help our small sanctuary raise the needed funds to install its own water system. Getting water has indeed become a daily challenge for the last few months and we have to beg water from friends to provide our orphans with drinking water.

Please, help us make this water nightmare a problem of the past!! Any support means the world to THEM!!

Please help us to install our own water system at our sanctuary for orphaned chimpanzees in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)!

Infrastructure is poor in the DRC and on some days, nothing comes out the tap, placing an enormous strain on our daily efforts.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 by Tuesday, 15th October 2019 so that this finally becomes a problem of the past.

Interested? Join us on our Giving Day for Apes page:

Any support represents the world to these orphaned chimpanzees.
Thank you for them!


CHIMPANZEES ARE VERY SOCIAL CREATURES-they spend their days playing, tickling and teasing one another

Our sanctuary has been invited in different places in Europe and I am taking the opportunity to bring back to the DRC as many things as possible for our hairy friends!

Since we don’t have many drugs in the DRC and since the ones we can find on the local markets are 4 times more expensive than the ones in Europe, I have created a fundraiser on Internet to collect some funds to buy medication for about 1 year (anibiotics and deworming drugs). Here is the link to our event:  We need about USD 1,125 to purchase the needed items.

Should the French page be an obstacle to you, you can always donate via our “donate” page :

Your support would be really appreciated as every little bit helps in this part of the world!!

Thank YOU for THEM!!
