Donkey Skin Trade

There has been progress since the release of the Under the Skin report just over eight months ago.

We’re so proud of the networking, lobbying, advocacy and media strengths of our partners on this issue. By adding your voices locally, regionally and globally, and putting in a great deal of leg-work, the donkey skin trade is now firmly on the global radar and real changes have been achieved.

The campaign delivered by the Welttierschutzgesellschaft and the LSPCA ran for a period of twenty eight days and covered at least twenty two townships around Lilongwe. The 2017 rabies campaign’s theme: “zero rabies by 2030,” followed an agreement by World Health Organization (WHO), World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (UNFAO) and Global Alliance Rabies Control (GARC) to eliminate human deaths from canine rabies by 2030.

According to WHO, rabies a viral infection of the nervous system is one of the deadly diseases killing over 60,000 people worldwide and claims an estimated 500 lives per year in Malawi. Children are most likely to become infected with rabies resulting from dog licks and bites as they often play and have closer contact with animals.

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.
