for a good cause

In Africa, millions of people survive by their livestock. Yet veterinary care is often insufficiently available. When farmers lose their herds to disease, drought or conflict, they lose everything: their pride, their culture, their savings and their livelihood. By helping to care for livestock and improve production, Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium supports local populations in their struggle against hunger and poverty.


Become an ambassador

Jan Leyers, Flemish musician and television personality, has been an ambassador for Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium since 2000. He went to Turkana in Kenya to see our activities there.

Probably like everyone, I initially thought that Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium was an organisation for animal protection. Their slogan "When the herd dies, it's the village that dies" dispelled any traces of ambiguity. That may seem like a paradox, but the fact is that the vets of Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium also save humans. For tribes such as the Turkana, livestock is the main source of income and therefore the only hope of a life in accordance with human dignity.


Julien Binard is a French speaking ambassador for our organization since 2012. As a vet, he has a passion for animals, which he shares on television as a presentator for the RTBF program Sans Chichis (La Deux). "I know Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium since studying veterinary medicine. A person working for the NGO gave a presentation to us. I always wanted to participate in humanitarian action. Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium combines this desire perfectly with my passion for animals," says Julien.


Jan Leyers and Julien Binard are working to make Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium known to the general public. You can also become an ambassador for Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium.
