The first months of this year have been marked by incredible challenges for J.A.C.K., with rescues of small primates and great apes illegally held in the north of the country and in the Congolese Basin region. The main areas of intervention were the provinces of Sankuru, Bas-Uele and Tshopo.
J.A.C.K. facing with these critical situations, its Congolese Sponsor, the VINMART FOUNDATION , was there to provide invaluable assistance. One of the most important aspects of our work at the sanctuary is feeding the primates. Thanks to the contribution of the VINMART FOUNDATION, we have been able to provide a healthy, balanced diet for our residents. Their generosity enables us to purchase fresh fruit, vegetables and other essential foods to meet the specific nutritional needs of each species.
In addition to feeding and veterinary care, maintenance of the sanctuary is also essential to ensure a sanitized and comfortable environment for our protected ones. The VINMART FOUNDATION is always a valuable partner in this task, providing funds for the regular upkeep of the facilities.
Finally, the VINMART FOUNDATION also helps us to purchase protective equipment for our team of keepers. Working with primates can be dangerous, and it’s essential that our staff members have the necessary equipment to protect themselves (gloves, hoods, vests and other capture gear). Also, through this valuable contribution, we can provide our team with care gloves, single-use masks and other essential safety equipment.
We would therefore like to extend our warmest thanks to the VINMART FOUNDATION for their unwavering support over the years. Their commitment to our cause is invaluable and enables us to continue to provide a safe and loving home for primates in need. We are deeply grateful for their amazing help in all aspects of our work at the sanctuary.
In conclusion, the VINMART FOUNDATION is an essential partner in our mission to protect and preserve primates. Its generosity continues to have a significant impact on the lives of our residents, and we are extremely grateful for all the Foundation has done and continue to do to support us. We look forward to counting on their incredible support in the years to come.
