Botswana Blog – November 2013

11 November 2013

Maun is a town in Botswana with a  population of about 56,000, and the tribal capital of the Batawana people.

Doris, one of Cogges vets, and Lauren, one of our qualified vet nurses, flew out from Heathrow on Saturday to do some important volunteer work at the Maun Animal Welfare Society (MAWS).


Lauren and Doris at Heathrow, Saturday 9 Nov

MAWS aims to improve the lives of domestic animals by providing free veterinary services and educational programmes in and around Maun, Botswana. They undertake routine neutering, administer vaccinations, provide life-saving emergency treatment and reunite, re-home and rehabilitate lost, found and stray animals. To find out more about MAWS, check their website:
Doris and Lauren took desperately needed supplies to the clinic as well as some extras for the nearby orphanage.

During the next 2 weeks we will keep you informed of their efforts and adventures, so please check this blog regularly.

You can be a part of this too, by making a donation. Please call into the practice and we will tell you how.
