    "Last year alone, 159,631 donkeys in Kenya were slaughtered for their skins. An estimated 60 donkeys a week are being stolen from Kenyan owners who depend on them for daily life and to make a living. At this rate, donkeys will vanish from the African continent by 2023. We must accelerate our action—we must ban the trade of donkey skins, crack down on smuggling, and protect the donkeys." - Brooke USA.

    Please petition Amazon from selling the ejiao products. Action plan is on the Brooke websites.
