Forced labor for six donkeys is over, never to resume!

Exploited for their stoicism and gentleness, donkeys at brick kilns will endure scorching conditions this summer, compounded by a lack of water and proper nourishment—and even a moment’s rest from backbreaking labor. Animal Rahat’s work to mechanize the many brick kilns in Maharashtra allows these men to stack their brick tower without breaking donkeys’ spirits. Not only are tractors and trolleys more efficient, they also eliminate loads of suffering—a true building block of compassion!
