Save when you travel

Whenever you spend in foreign currency, whether that’s online shopping or travelling abroad, your bank will typically charge 3-5% in fees. Your new debit card removes the bank fees. Some or all of those savings can automatically be donated. You decide how much.

About Brooke

Brooke is an international animal welfare charity dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable working horses, donkeys and mules around the world, and the communities that depend on them.

We believe that animal suffering is preventable and that good animal welfare protects human livelihoods. For 600 million people in some of the poorest places in the world, equines are the backbone of communities, their best means of making a living. Without healthy working horses, donkeys and mules, they wouldn’t be able to put food on the table, send children to school or build better futures for themselves and their families.

Working where the need is greatest, we relieve immediate suffering and create lasting change by working with people, communities and organisations. We address common welfare issues, improve animal health services and we influence governments and international bodies to improve animal welfare policies.

Each year we reach 1.6 million working horses, donkeys and mules to give them a life worth living.

The Brooke Hospital for Animals is a registered charity in England and Wales (1085760) and Scotland (SC050582).

About Brooke
Spotlight on our projects

Spotlight on our projects:

Extreme heat, no water and little rest. Life can be ruthless for horses, donkeys and mules working in brick kilns. They play a crucial role in brick production, but they are incredibly vulnerable.

Working animals carry bricks in temperatures as high as 50°C, and can work for up to 11 hours a day, with no rest or shelter and very little water. Many are overloaded with bricks in an effort to increase productivity, and often they collapse under the weight. This can lead to injuries, back sores and other wounds as well as irreparable fractures.

Your support could help to alleviate the suffering of working horses, donkeys and mules in brick kilns, teach owners how to properly care for their animals, provide shade, shelter, drinking water and first aid kits as well as training local service providers to provide these hard working animals with the care they deserve.

Removing more than we produce

We know our cards contain plastic, and are working on different solutions to reduce this. In the meantime, we're focussed on reducing the impact of our cards, and have committed to removing 2.5 times the plastic we produce every year. We do this by supporting Plastic Bank who recover and recycle ocean bound plastic.
