CEVA Charity Professional of the Year Award 2013 - Kim Taylor
Kim Taylor, Co-founder of ACE and Centre Manager won Charity Professional of the Year in 2013. Through her determination and vision she has ensured ACE helps tens of thousands of animals every year in Luxor.
The CEVA awards were created to formally recognise veterinary professionals and individuals who work tirelessly to improve animal welfare. Kim co-founded ACE with her aunt Julie Warternburg in 2000.
“In life we often see things that we would like to change, but to get the opportunity to totally change your life around and put your ideas into action is rare” … Kim Taylor (Co-founder and Manager)
Have you ever felt like your heart was going to break? That sensation when you see something you just can’t imagine possible and have no control over? That’s exactly what happened when Kim Taylor and her Aunt Julie Wartenberg were on holiday. They saw small underfed donkeys suffering from neglect by the very owners who needed them so badly. Animals being beaten in the street. Horses with raw skin being worked with the very harness that caused the damage.
Since the founding of ACE we have grown into a centre with 25 stables, 3 large paddocks, clinics and a classroom to teach local children – the next generation of animal owners in Luxor. ACE is an ever-growing, great team of professionals and volunteers all working towards the same goal – to relieve and prevent the suffering of the animals in Egypt. We helped over 26,000 animals in 2012.
If you would like to visit us while you are in Luxor, we would love to see you and show you around the centre. You will get a tour of the hospital, centre and the stables where you can meet and cuddle some of our patients!
We welcome volunteers from all walks of life. You don’t need to be a qualified vet or vet nurse to help us at the centre in Luxor. We have general volunteer placements, veterinary student and vet nurse student placements.
