Globalization confronts farmers, veterinarians and citizens worldwide with the same challenges. Whether speaking of poverty, milk prices or climate change. The choices we make in Belgium have consequences for people in the South and vice versa.
Information, awareness… and action!
We want to inform people in Belgium about problems, challenges, innovation and solutions in the African countries where we work. We want to share our expertise and raise awareness. But we want more than that. We want you to get enthusiastic for international solidarity; we want you to take action. We want you to share our information, raise your voice, attend an activity, go on an exchange trip or fundraise. Only then can we continue our global fight for a better world.
Do you want to know more about the topics we work with? Take a look at our media library: policy briefs, brochures, annual reports…
Vétérinaires Sans Frontières International
Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium is a member of Vétérinaires Sans Frontières International (VSF International), which counts thirteen members active in more than 40 countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia. All of us support family farming and cattle breeding in the South.
The members of VSF International align the regions where they are active. We share resources, experience and knowledge, and this way increase our own capacities and those of our local partners.
