Veterinary care - Zimbabwe

26 February 2015

Zimbabwe is SPANA’s newest country, with the permanent veterinary service launching in 2013, following a successful partnership project with a local charity. SPANA’s two vets, Dr Erick and Dr Andy, travel up to 1,600km at a time in the mobile clinics to help thousands of working donkeys throughout the country. Around 95 per cent of the population live in poverty in Zimbabwe’s rural areas and the mobile clinics are the only way for people to access veterinary care for the animals they rely upon.

Two mobile clinics, visiting smaller towns, villages and rural communities in six provinces Over 4,800 donkeys treated last year More than 23,000 miles travelled by SPANA’s mobile clinics in 2013.
