Ceva’s continuing support helps Indian animal welfare charity to achieve more
Charities of the world over face a constant struggle to raise the funds they need to enable them to fulfil their charitable purposes.
Ceva’s support has made a real difference. Compared to 2015, our grant income in 2017 increased by more than 90%. A single social media campaign, focused on maggot-infected dogs during the post-monsoon season when the risk is especially high, raised in just two weeks enough money to directly help 180 dogs.
TOLFA’s executive director in the UK
TOLFA’s achievements during 2017 were impressive: 5,967animals admitted to its rescue centre and hospital, 22,497animals treated through its rural outreach program and 5,358pets treated at its veterinary clinic. In addition, 1,329school pupils were taught its animal welfare and rabies awareness syllabus.
Ceva’s relationship with TOLFA dates back to 2012 when Rachel Wright, TOLFA’s founder, was recognised as the Welfare Nurse of the Year in the inaugural Ceva Awards for Animal Welfare.
Since then the company has provided financial, practical and moral support to the charity.
During 2017, the focus has been on helping TOLFA be more effective in its fund raising so that it can concentrate on helping more animals and engaging with more communities.
Ceva’s support during the year included contributing towards the salary of Clara Nowak, TOLFA’s executive director in the UK, providing access to a specialist donor management software package and directly sponsoring printing of fundraising calendars and greeting cards.
