The VSF-Suisse Association

VSF-Suisse was founded in 1988 by students of veterinary medicine at the University of Berne. With a great vision and thousands of volunteer hours, it managed to implement the first two projects in 1996 in what is now South Sudan. In the same year, a professionally managed office was opened in Berne. Today VSF-Suisse has 250 members and about 150 staff, of which twelve at the headquarters and the others in the various country offices. Our country teams are led by local managers and consist mainly of veterinarians and project staff. Together, they manage an average of 30-40 projects per year in Ethiopia, Djibouti, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, Mali, Somalia, South Sudan and Togo. VSF-Suisse is part of the VSF International network and is Zewo-certified in Switzerland.
