Please support our fall campaign

Asking for money is never easy. VWB/VSF is an organization dedicated to action, caring for animals to ensure that families have enough food, that there is money for children to attend school, and that women are spared some of their most back-breaking labour. But without money, action is not possible, so each autumn we reach out to people who care about animals and the well-being of people around the world to ask for the funds we need to carry on.  Over the next few weeks we will be sharing stories from our work here in Canada and around the world, and we will be asking you, through your donations, to be part of the effort to build hope through our work with animals.

For more than a dozen years our volunteers – veterinarians, vet students, vet techs, animal nutritionists, farm management specialists, gender specialists and more -- have fanned out around the world helping small scale farmers raise healthy, productive livestock. It is amazing to see the difference that a flock of chickens, a small herd of goats, or a single milk cow can make in the life of a poor family. By teaching women and men to plow with a donkey or ox we have seen families multiply their food production by five or even tenfold while reducing the back-breaking work traditionally done with a short handled hoe that mostly falls to women.

Last year we ramped up our efforts in Canada’s North, sending animal care teams into remote communities in the Northwest Territories that do not have access to adequate veterinary services. The first three missions were an unqualified success, and with your help we will be able to continue and expand our efforts.

We are proud of the changes we have made in the lives of people in Africa and Asia as well as here in our own country, and we are deeply grateful to our supporters who share in the credit for our accomplishments.  Please help us kick off our annual campaign with a generous donation. Click on the link below to make a one-time donation or sign up for an easy, and painless monthly donation.

We thank you in advance for your caring gesture!
