The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of £1,430,000 ($1,891,890 at time of conversion) over two years to Compassion in World Farming (Compassion) to support work to advance farm animal welfare in China. Compassion plans to use these funds to continue working with Chinese producers, food companies, and industry to raise farm animal welfare standards. Our farm animal welfare team believes Compassion’s China team has collaborated productively with industry, and benefits from dedicated senior leadership.

This follows our February 2017 grant and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
