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.


Local partner organisations

Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium works closely with local organisations to implement its programmes in Africa. We strengthen the knowledge and the capacities of our local partners so they can in turn ensure the development of their country in a sustainable, effective and efficient way. As the partner organisations develop greater autonomy, the role of Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium evolves from 'implementor' to development 'facilitator'.
