This Baby Orangutan Was Locked In A Cage Since Birth. What The Nurse Does In Response Is WONDERFUL.

This story highlights the incredible kindness of a nurse and her team as they take care of a malnourished and struggling baby orangutan.


The International Animal Rescue (IAR) is the organization that saved it.  About the incident they said, “Budi is a baby orangutan that (was) rescued in Indonesia.  For the first year of his life Budi was kept in a chicken cage and fed on nothing but condensed milk which was slowly killing him.

On arrival at IAR’s orangutan rescue centre Budi’s condition was extremely critical, and he was too frail to move or sit up on his own. He was showing signs of severe malnutrition and screaming in pain every time he was moved by the vets. This video shows vet Karmele feeding Budi from a bottle and vet Jaclyn weighing him.”

Who do you know that has been treated unjustly, without dignity and respect?  Make a point to care for that person in a special way sometime this month.
