Jai Lal Shah


Jai Lal Shah, a 35-year-old, transports people by carriage to earn a living for his large family.  

Jai ferries passengers from Raxaul border to Birgunj in Nepal. The community they live in used to rely heavily on traditional healing methods for their animals, which were ineffective at best, and often caused great harm and pain to the animals.

The community also distrusted veterinary providers for fear the veterinarians would take their animals away.  After a while, Brooke gained the trust of the community, and since then, have formed an equine welfare group, of which Jai Lal has been nominated as the Chairman.
