Healthy animals, healthy people, healthy environment!
Millions of people in Africa depend on their livestock. Vétérinaires Sans Frontières-Netherlands (VSF-NL) works together with African farmers to keep their animals healthy. This helps these farmers to build better lives themselves.
What we do in Malawi
In Malawi, we train Community Animal Health Workers (CAHWs). They help farmers keep their herds healthy. Animals, training, equipment and animal health care enable them to produce enough food for themselves and for the market.
What we do in the Netherlands
In the Netherlands, we raise awareness about sustainable livestock and food production. We lobby for decision-making in favor of small-scale farmers in Africa. We involve veterinarians and veterinary students.
What we did
To give you an overview of what we did in 2021, among other things, we have listed a few figures:
We are members of the network Vétérinaires Sans Frontières International. This network consists of thirteen different non-profit organizations in Europe, Canada and Australia. Together we are committed to improving the living conditions of small-scale farmers worldwide and to strengthening local initiatives in the field of animal health and welfare.
