Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $800,000 over two years to Sinergia Animal to support corporate cage-free campaigns and investigations across Latin America. Sinergia Animal intends to use this funding to secure cage-free corporate commitments and carry out investigations in Colombia, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, and Peru, which have a combined total of approximately 184 million layer hens.

This follows our March 2019 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $187,600 over two years to Sinergia Animal to support farm animal investigations and corporate campaigns in Southeast Asia. Sinergia Animal specifically plans to use these funds to launch corporate cage-free egg campaigns, as the region has a large number of farmed birds.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $245,000 to Sinergia Animal to pursue corporate campaigns across Latin America. Approximately 500 million layer hens and 2 billion broiler chickens are alive in Latin America at any time, and corporate campaigners have had some success in Latin America, securing numerous cage-free commitments in the last two years. We believe Sinergia Animal played a significant role in some of those campaigns, including some of the first wins in Argentina, Chile, and Colombia.

This is a discretionary grant and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
