Healthy Animals - Healthy People - Healthy Environment

We 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 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 offers a way out of poverty.
