We are coming to the end of 2022, and it has been a rich year, both in the regions in Africa where we intervene and in Belgium. These images offer a reminder of some of the milestones of the past year.
“The Lake Kivu region is an explosive cocktail for the emergence of a pandemic”
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.
A network to protect animal health in South Kivu
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.
Moving towards humanitarian aid
Thanks to the European Union’s Humanitarian Partnership Certificate, emergency aid actions are now within our reach. We should soon be able to help even more livestock keepers’ families.
