Volunteer and a donation to Africa

Today, September 13, 2018, our Volunteer Mafalda Iria travelled to S. Tomé to collaborate with the project “Dogs that Listen” and with the local authorities (Direção Geral de Pecuária), in order to provide veterinary assistance to pet animals and to livestock. Throughout her stay, Mafalda will collaborate with local veterinarians. For this mission, VSF-Portugal benefited from donations of veterinary products from ZOETIS and ECUPHAR, as well as money donations from clinics acquired during the campaign “Vaccination for Africa” (14th to 22nd July)). The picture shows the material that was donated. Our sincere thanks are due to all that collaborated directly or indirectly to the success of this Mission.

Manuel Malta – VSF Member Always

Two years, on July 13th, Manuel Malta left us! We are sure that he would be very proud to see his example motivating his collegues veterinarians to pursue with the goals of ‘Veterinários sem Fronteiras – Portugal’.
When we see the photographs of the missions Manuel has headed in Cape Verde and S. Tome, and there were many, we are immensely pleased to realize how Manuel was a very important pillar in the creation and credibility of VSF-PORTUGAL!

Manuel will always be with us!!
