Figures & impact
Do you ever wonder what Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium does with your donation? We attach great importance to transparency. We are happy to honestly explain how we spend the money you donate. And what the positive impact of your contribution is.
The impact of your donation
With your support, deprived but entrepreneurial livestock farmers in Africa can themselves overcome poverty. Thanks to animals, training, materials and animal healthcare, they can provide enough food for themselves and for the market.

The Belgian Association for Ethics in Fundraising (VEF-AERF) checks every year whether we ethically deal with donors and their donations. The Belgian government also checks regularly how we spent our money and whether we can issue tax certificates. Rest assured, we are allowed to do so. As a donor living in Belgium, you receive a tax certificate for donations starting from 40 euros on an annual basis. A token of confidence, even if we say so ourselves.
Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium endorses the ethics code of VEF-AERF. You have a right to information. This means that donors, volunteers and employees are at least annually informed of what has been done with the acquired funds.
Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium receives support from various local, regional, national and international financial partners. You can find the most important ones here.
