Mawethu Isaac Kunyu
Animal Welfare Assistant (AWA)

Isaac has been with TAWI since the beginning and is the reason for TAWI’s success. A young local Xhosa man with an inspirational dedication to improving the lives of Dogs and educating owners, Isaac works tirelessly. Isaac is now a trained Animal Welfare Assistant (AWA) and under the remote guidance of the state vet is qualified to administer vaccinations, antibiotics and euthanise when necessary (predominantly rabies and snake bites). Isaac’s skill and knowledge is invaluable, for without him there are no veterinary services for rural Dogs within at least a 2 hour drive.
In November 2017, Isaac was awarded the 2017 Rabies Day Award for his dedication to eliminating this awful disease in the communities. We are super proud of him!
