The World Federation for Animals (WFA) expanded its membership to working horse and donkey charity Brooke this month, to help recognise animal welfare as essential to sustainable development.

Made up of more than 60 Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), WFA has enlisted Brooke to support its efforts to integrate animal welfare into international health, food, environment and trade.

Brooke, an international charity reaching more than 1.4 million working horses, donkeys and mules worldwide, is one of seven global organisations selected by the WFA this year.

Chris Wainwright, Chief Executive of Brooke, said: “Brooke is delighted to be joining WFA as an official member.

“We have been working with WFA as partners for many years, but this membership will offer us the opportunity to further strengthen our global advocacy, within the UN and beyond.”

Brooke will be part of the WFA’s promise to ensure animal welfare is recognised in achieving the global sustainable development agenda, declared in its first-ever General Assembly on 15 May 2024.

James Yeates, Chief Executive of WFA, said: "It is an honour to welcome Brooke into our Federation of collaborative, world-leading animal protection organisations.

“Brooke is an amazing charity, with an impressive record of pioneering work to help animals in ways that drive sustainable development for people, and will be critical to our collective success changing the world for animals."

Working across Africa, Asia, and Latin America, Brooke celebrated its 90th anniversary this year at Buckingham Palace with its President, Her Majesty The Queen.
