35 years of commitment for people and animals in Africa

We are pleased to celebrate the 35th anniversary of VSF-Suisse this year. At the same time, given the current crises in our countries of operation, we cannot rest and must continue to strengthen our commitment to support the most vulnerable populations and their animals

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.
