Dear Friends of J.A.C.K.

Thank YOU again so much for your support of J.A.C.K. in our efforts to raise funds for a water system at our sanctuary for rescued chimpanzees in the DR Congo.

Great news: WE DID IT!!

Thanks to YOU, we have received enough donations to launch this amazing water project!

In a massive global effort, we received gifts from Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada, Argentina, French Guyana, Great-Britain, Ireland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Hungary, Switzerland, Germany, Portugal, Luxemburg, South Africa and DR Congo.

We will keep you updated on the progress of this exciting project, which will tremendously help our team and which will also make our day-to-day efforts of caring for our beautiful orphaned chimps so much easier.

YOU have made a miracle come TRUE!

Thank YOU,

J.A.C.K , its Team and furry residents

 

 

 

🥕NO WATER – no greenhouse !!
NO GREENHOUSE – no organic food!
🍆Help us make our greenhouse GREEN again and consider donating via the link in our bio
🍓THANK YOU!

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! 

To finish off our countdown, we wanted to share with you a final important (and fun!) reason why we need access to water at the sanctuary…

7. ENRICHMENT

Yes, they are pretty sweet playing with their frozen ice lollies in the Congo heat!

But this activity has a deeper purpose. 

Many of these chimps have experienced the true terror of seeing their family massacred in order for poachers to take them from the wild. On average, 10 adult chimps are killed to obtain just one baby chimp which will be sold as bushmeat or to the exotic pet industry, where they experience further trauma and suffering. 

These 33 chimps at J.A.C.K. are safe forever, but represent a much larger scale of horror.

As these orphaned chimps have been rescued from different places across the DR Congo over the past 13 years, play is a really special way that we help them to settle in to their new life with us, to connect with each other, make friends and establish a new family of their own at J.A.C.K.

Please help us to help them! Every dollar counts and means the world to us! Thank you!

🌿 Ngoy, Dr Christian, Isaac, Maman Angéline, Julie, Joël, Jérémie, Alain, Elie et Landry are showing the man reasons why water is so  needed at  the sanctuary. Help us raise money to install a desperately needed water system at our sanctuary for rescued chimpanzees in the DR Congo!

💜 Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed, your gift will go such a long way!

💦2 DAYS UNTIL GIVING DAY!💦

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 https://bit.ly/2MlW9LY!

Our countdown to Giving Day is almost complete!

6. SELF-SUFFICIENCY

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!💦

5. CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE
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!

Staff
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!

We all know that water is essential to life – and running a sanctuary for 33 orphaned chimpanzees in the Democratic Republic of the Congo certainly has its challenges! 

Access to fresh drinking water is a daily obstacle for us, and when the pipes run dry, it severely impacts our efforts and the lives of some very special individuals.

1. HYDRATION – 7 days until Giving Day
At J.A.C.K., we use donated recycled water bottles to safety provide more than 100L of fluids for our rescued chimps every day!
