This is a rather new non-profit organization that needs help to support the animals that they have on their farm.
“Animal Friends” is a “Kunuku with Horses, a Cow, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Ducks, Guinea Fowl’s, Chickens and lots and lots of little Chicks.
We have a Donkey and Geese, Turtles Dogs and Kittens.
Our purpose is to unite the children of Bonaire.
Not often do we have the opportunity to touch and interact with animals here. It’s has been our Goal to integrate all of our children with these lovely animals
Bunnies and Hamsters are still on our wish list and Funchi would love a Dwarf Goat. My personal wish would be Ponies ….!!!
We are striving to enrich the knowledge of Farming and Fishing (Sea Turtles) with all the children on the Island. This through personal interaction with the animals and farm products, seeing, touching, feeling, tasting and smelling. This is the purpose of our “Knoek” Animal Friends
We are fortunate to have a lot of Farmers in our area that have played a key role, in teaching us and the children everything there can be learned on a farm. In these days we have to focus on our Bonaire Traditions if we do not they will disappear.
In the old days we lived in the “Knoek” out in the country only to travel to the city doing the weekend to play Domino’s.
Nowadays it seems to reversed it self. There is a very large group of children that have never seen a cow. Think about it Milk a cow with your own hands, Trim a sheep, Pick a Papaya feed the animals.
The opportunity to do this should be shared with every child on the island.
Did you know that Melons seeded 3 days after a full moon do not require pesticides…….Cows mooo to identify themselves …. That Chickens, Geese, Doves have no difficulty at all recognizing their own young even though they all look alike.
With this we would love to extend the invitation to all of you.
To come by and to take a close look yourself donations in any form are most welcomed Old bread vegetables are much appreciated
or if you would rather make a donation.
Anything is much appreciated take a look at our wish list.
To top this all of we have even provided a small area for after school care, Children parties, field trips and vacation camp.
Have a Magical Day Funchi and Jose
