Usually, pet care is not a part of the mission of the VSF International network. However, the urgency and exceptional nature of the situation cannot leave us indifferent and compels us to act in our capacity of veterinarians.
With our AWELAD project we aim to improve the health of horses and donkeys as well as sensitize people, including animal owners, traders and government representatives, to animal welfare.
Healthy Animals - Healthy People - Healthy EnvironmentWe improve the well-being and resilience of vulnerable populations by promoting the health and productivity of their livestock within a sustainable environment.
What we do
VSF-Suisse fights hunger and poverty in eight countries in East and West Africa. We work especially for and with people who depend on animals for their livelihood. Our actions lead to improved nutrition and food security. Additionally, they generate income that gives people improved access to health services and education and thus offer ways out of poverty.
