Dahab Diary

21 January 2014

After Botswana in November, Cogges is now going to Egypt to provide some important veterinary aid.

Dahab is a small town on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. It is a popular destination for divers, and it was during one of her diving trips that Lisa, our head nurse, became aware of the plight of the animals in the area. She met José from Animal Welfare Dahab (AWD), ‘a small group of volunteers focusing on neutering of stray cats and dogs in Dahab’ (AWD facebook), and decided that there was something Cogges Veterinary Surgery could contribute.

For a short history of AWD, see this link to ‘Stichting Zwerfdieren Dahab’ (Foundation for Strays in Dahab):

On 25th January Karen and Lisa are going to Dahab to participate in AWD’s TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) project from the 26th of January until the 7th of February. They will be taking along much needed supplies and medicines for the charity and expect to make a valuable contribution.
