Some of the students in Years 7-11 have been involved in a very special Community Action Service project this year, working with the children from Sfanta Macrina orphanage to help the lives of some of the street dogs, and in this case (see photos below) are taking Bela to the vet for the first time for her vaccinations, deworming, and first check-up. She is only a puppy, but already huge! The club is helping to improve her living conditions and the way others respond to her, and it’s working! She now has a house (shelter), water dishes, and some healthier food, plus she is freed from her chain twice a day. She is learning how to walk on a leash and socialise with other dogs. The children from Sfanta Macrina orphanage are also losing their fear of dogs, interacting with her in positive ways, and are beginning to understand how to treat and care for living creatures.
Next project- sterilisation!
