Jarjeer Mules is a retirement home, orphanage and care centre for many animals in the foothills of the Atlas near Marrakech.
All of us at Jarjeer are committed to animal welfare and those within our charge are cared for to exacting standards. The Machin Foundation is committed to fighting the abuse of working animals and assisting their owners. The Foundation sends donations to Jarjeer to help our work in Morocco. Visitors are welcome to come to Jarjeer, either to just enjoy the company of the animals, walk the foothills with a donkey or to bring their children to ride one of the older donkeys.

“I know… I know! Everyone says so, but our visit to this most amazing, mind opening, heart warming and intelligent hospice-cum-reserve-cum-home for these of God’s creatures was the highlight of our trip to Marrakesh. An oasis of kindness and care that puts your feet back on the ground and reminds you about that which really matters: we’re all on this boat together and rowing is not optional. Thank you Susan, thank you Charles, and thank you Men. Pass me an oar!”

“Jarjeer is a wonderful place, and probably the best sanctuary for equines that I ever visited. Old and injured donkeys and mules are well cared for, and everyone there is so welcoming and so kind.”
