The Lilongwe Society for the Protection and Care of Animals (LSPCA) organised a walk to increase the visibility of working animals in Malawi. Global Working Animal Day is an annual event earmarked for the 20th August each year.

The emphasis of the walk is to raise awareness about the plight of donkeys and to showcase solutions to improve donkey welfare. The walk also focused on the vital role of working animals in Malawi, especially donkeys who provide daily income to farming families.


LSPCA is dedicated in promoting good animal welfare and veterinary care in Malawi. As part of its programming and service delivery to the community, LSPCA offers a practical learning platform to students at the Natural Resources Collage (NRC), studying for their Diploma in Animal Health and Livestock Production. The practical field schools take place in Mpingu Extension Planning Area (EPA) in Lilongwe.


Action speaks louder than words!  The 2017 prestigious international Tusk Award for Conservation in Africa goes to Malawi’s own Brighton Kumchedwa for his dedication towards conserving the wildlife and forests in Malawi. Tusk awards individuals who have been judged to be emerging as leading conservationist in recognition of their outstanding contribution to, and considerable success, in their chosen field. 


Decided to volunteer because you always say “One day I’ll go to [this charity] and help out” but very few actually do. I knew briefly that LSPCA existed since I knew about Veterinarians Without Borders (Sweden) so I decided to go there. On my first visit, I was quickly made to feel like a member of the clinic undertaking consults and surgery for paying clients but I enjoyed the Spay Day and Farm Clinics [field work] the most!
