How can a potential new pandemic be eradicated before it even develops? Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium (VSF-B) is seeking answers to this problem, particularly in the Eastern Congo.
Charline Nabintu and Safi Ngomora live in South Kivu in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The two women have never met, but they have a lot in common. Despite the underlying insecurity, they have both chosen to devote their careers to animal health, serving livestock keepers in the region. Safi is a vet and Charline is a community animal health worker. This is a service of great benefit to society in a region where most of the population depend on livestock keeping for survival.
