Habiba and Friends Animal Shelter in Cairo, Egypt
Habiba and Friends Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization based in Cairo, Egypt. A small humble shelter, overwhelmed with neglected and homeless animals. Shelter director Bilkes Ibrahem has been involved in animal rescue for 12 years in a country that despises animals and has no animal welfare laws. Bilkes decided to start her non-profit in 2016 due to there being no animal services and the necessity of helping so many lives! Habiba and Friends Animal Shelter is a caring place where animals are rescued from so much cruelty and abuse and find loving homes all over the world. Bilkes's goal one day is to expand her facility so they can take in and help more unwanted and injured animals.
