Mahabaleshwar earlier, Panchgani now!
31st May 2021, Sadhu Vaswani Mission adopted 150 starving horses at Panchgani, committing to provide feed for them. Earlier, the Mission adopted 147 horses from Mahabaleshwar who were facing a similar situation owing to the second wave of the pandemic.
“Once we committed to providing food for the horses at Mahabaleshwar, we realised that the situation would be similar in other regions where tourism is the basic earning factor. Following a survey, we found that another 150 horses in Panchgani were undergoing the same plight, we decided to support them also,” said the spokesperson.
The fodder is sourced from a local provider. Each horse eats about 10 kgs of fodder per day. The cost of the fodder is Rs. 10 per kg. The daily cost for feeding a horse is Rs. 100.
The Mission plans to continue serving the horses until the need is there. The activities, coordination and supervision are regularly done by the Mission volunteers.
