World Animal Day – Jordan
SPANA Jordan celebrates World Animal Day at Jordan University of Science and Technology, Irbid.
On the 4 October the SPANA team were honoured to welcome HRH Princess San’a Asem, who travelled from Amman to Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) in Irbid to lend her support to our World Animal Day events.
Her Royal Highness joined the President of the university at the opening ceremony, where the dean of the faculty of veterinary science and SPANA country director Dr Ghazi Mustafa welcomed crowds of visitors.
Following the speeches local schoolchildren sang songs which illustrated the important of the animals in our lives, before Her Royal Highness opened the World Animal Day activity tent, displaying projects undertaken by schools and other groups to promote animal welfare.
Representatives of the police force were also on hand to demonstrate the importance of dogs to their work, before leading a display of police horses.
Finally the SPANA team got down to work, providing free treatment for animals at the JUST clinic.
