The Gift of Life

Livestock aid programmes have an important contribution to make in fighting hunger and alleviating poverty in the Developing World. There, animals mean much more than just meat, milk, wool, feathers, hair and hides ? they provide draft power, represent cash and a store of wealth for emergencies, confer status, fertilise gardens and crops, provide fuel through biogas and serve important cultural functions. Through their work as four-legged tractors and from the manure they provide, draft cattle and buffalo enable families to produce sufficient levels of vegetable and cereal crops. With these animals comes a world of hope but only if they are healthy and productive. VIVA provides veterinary support to smallholders by training community animal health workers and equipping them with medicines, A.I equipment and educational materials..
