Looming crisis in the Horn of Africa

The Horn of Africa is facing a crisis. The current nutritional situation is precarious and predictions for the remainder of 2021 are alarming – with warnings of famine for certain regions. The international community is called upon to take immediate action.

We are happy to invite our members to the VSF-Suisse General Assembly 2021. At the General Assembly we will inform you about our different activities.

Update on the desert locust plague in the Horn of Africa

Desert locusts remain present across the greater Horn of Africa. The impact on affected communities remains high and may lead to increased vulnerability of pastoralist and agro-pastoralist communities, affecting their livelihoods, food security and nutrition status.

Environmental protection and improved living conditions

The expansion of environmental protection and the improvement of the living conditions of thousands of people can go hand in hand, as the example of our recently completed project APFA II shows.

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 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.
