For some 600 million people in some of the poorest places, these working animals are «the backbone of communities and their best means of livelihood,» according to Brook.

The charity aims to improve the lives of these animals as well as give people in the developing world the opportunity to gain employment.

Brooke was founded by Dorothy Brooke, the wife of a British cavalry officer who sought out ex-war horses that had been deployed in and outside of Cairo when the conflict ended in 1918.

Her pleas in a letter to the editor of the then Morning Post (now The Telegraph) in 1931 were heard and with the help of the British public, Dorothy raised enough money to buy back 5,000 horses.

Following this, Dorothy established a veterinary clinic in Cairo, which has now grown into the global organization that Brooke is today.
