The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $500,000 to Mercy For Animals to support new farm animal welfare work in India. The grant will help support undercover investigations, corporate campaigns, research, and policy-related campaign activities over the next two years. We are excited about the grant primarily because of Mercy For Animals’ track record of successful undercover investigations in the U.S.; our Program Officer for Farm Animal Welfare, Lewis Bollard’s, confidence in Mercy For Animals’ relevant leadership staff; and the potential opportunity we see in India—one of the world’s largest producers of eggs, fish, and chicken—to encourage farm animal welfare reforms and advocacy. This grant was one of five recent grants recommended to various organizations supporting farm animal welfare activities in India.
