The desert region of Rajasthan is a harsh environment to live in and the current drought is particularly hard on cattle let free by villagers who can no longer afford to feed them. Within the Jadan Ashram a large animal refuge has been built, which provides humane veterinary care for over 300 old, homeless and sick animals.One of the outcomes of the reforestation project is the fresh fodder for the animals. This increased nutrition enhances their recovery to good health.
The manure the cows produce is used to manufacture melthane gas for cooking.
