Oct 15, 2022 With literally hours to spare before eviction-day the UK NGO MAYHEW vets who fled Afghanistan to Pakistan have just enough funds to keep them housed for one more month – However this group is still far from safe. Housing costs are only paid up to 15 November. Additionally, the original, now closed fundraiser and associated media articles surrounding the earlier stages of Operation Magic Carpet contributed to putting their lives in further danger by releasing their identity. This group now have current, credible and imminent threats on their lives. Yesterday on 14.10.2022 the RCVS and the BVA released their own statements acknowledging their plight. The VET TIMES have also provided an update. Operation Magic Carpet Afghanistan will continue going forward and Paws Unite People have taken on the task of fundraising to keep them housed and pay for documentation, in addition to already supporting their own group from KSAR. They urgently need help with donations. Please support their fundraising..This is an immense task for a small charity and the need is great.
Oct 2, 2022 I’m urgently requesting fundraising help, potential donors and news/media promotional assistance - Any help, no matter how small will be gratefully accepted. Time is running out for the veterinarians and clinic staff evacuated on the Operation Magic Carpet Afghanistan mission. They are still currently in limbo in Pakistan awaiting processing.
The WTC G (World Trade Center Gibraltar) supported for 12-months of what could potentially be a total of a 24 month's processing timescale. The end date for funding by WTC G was Oct 4. Two day’s time... This has been now been extended to Oct 15.
Another 12 months of time is needed to clear this or this group face eviction and possible deportation back to Afghanistan.
If there is anything you may be able to assist with, please email me - Karen
