[Campaign Closed] World Vision: Eating companion animals is detrimental to the health of Korean children.

[Campaign update – April 13, 2017] Response from World Vision.

On April 11, 2017, we had received a response from World Vision. We would like to thank World Vision for responding to our campaign so quickly and positively. They informed us that “No dog or cat meat products or by-products have ever been served at any World Vision facilities in Korea, and we support the ethical treatment of animals.” Click HERE to learn more and read their response.

World VisionThe World Vision Organization dedicates itself to bringing real hope to children across the world. They have recently been announced as being in collaboration with the South Korean Food and Drug Ministry to work on various programs to benefit the health of South Korean children.

Korean MFDSWe want World Vision to know that we believe their first step in this endeavor should be to end the unregulated dog and cat meat trades in that country. Stopping the dog and cat meat trades = reduction in health hazards + increase in happiness. Let’s give them some facts.

Suggested letter:

Dear World Vision,

I’m sure you would be the first to agree that every nation has a duty to ensure, where possible, the health and welfare of its citizens – and a prosperous nation has no excuse not to do so. South Korea is a prosperous nation. Why, then, do the authorities care so little for the health and welfare of its citizens in turning a blind eye to the many health hazards caused by the dog and cat meat trades? Trades which are illegal but carry on unchecked and unpunished.

Fact: dogs and cats are kept in filthy conditions, fed on slops and swill, and overdosed on antibiotics. Result: products are entering the food chain that are not fit for human consumption, and adding to the worldwide problem of antibiotic overuse.

Fact: the animals are bred and raised in crowded and filthy conditions. Result: health hazards for the neighboring communities, and environmental pollution through stench, noise and uncontrolled effluent discharge.

Fact: the animals are deliberately transported and slaughtered in barbaric and cruel ways (dragged behind vehicles, packed tightly into cages, boiled alive, beaten to a pulp, blowtorched to death, hanged or bled to death). Result: witnessing this abhorrent treatment of man’s best friend must have a disturbing effect on the minds of the younger generation of South Koreans.

The Korean Herald recently reported that, in collaboration with the Korean Drug Ministry, your Organisation will be working together to enhance children’s diets, hold joint education programs on children’s nutrition, and promote the importance of children’s food safety in that country.

What, then, will you jointly be doing to urge the Korean Government to end the aberrant dog and cat meat trades? What will you jointly be doing to end these health hazards, caused as a direct result of the dog and cat meat trades?

It goes without question that we are completely concerned about the inhumane treatment of the creatures suffering in the meat trades, too, but we want to know what you, as an International Organisation, dedicated to bringing real hope to children across the world, will be doing to bring real hope, health and happiness to the children of South Korea in this respect?

An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress:
The favor of your reply is requested.
Thank you,

      This is barbaric and cruel,these poor animals being tortured,has anyone thought that one day disease will spread because when you eat these poor tortured victims,when you boil or maim these intelligent creatures,they will excrement into the elixirs you make out of these animals and the food and hopefully it will make you violently ill and so you die horribly.I hope the ones who do this will pay with their lives and God will punish all involved.Animals are more sentient and caring and are more intelligent than most people who have no hearts.
