Livelihoods for Families Through Livestock, Sudan

Aug 21, 2007

Progress Report August 2007: Livelihoods for Families through Livestock, Sudan

In partnership with donors from Global Giving, RI has been working with the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization and the Sudan Ministry of Animal Resources to improve the care of livestock in North Darfur.

Today, RI is running 7 Animal Health Care Centers that on average treat 12,000 animals each month, including donkeys, chickens, goats, horses, and camels. The support RI receives has provided for training 2 Community Animal Health Workers and 1 para-vet in each clinic (21 staff total). This year local vet staff received essential training on vaccination and outbreak response to combat newly emerging diseases. Since 2006, 30,000 animals have been vaccinated.

Donations have also helped to make the Animal Health Care Centers into permanent fixtures. In 2007, Centers evolved from temporary 3-walled shelters to 4-walled cement buildings. By the end of 2007, all 7 Centers will have new roofs.

RI’s agricultural interventions in North Darfur focus on access to basic veterinary care, sustainable farming techniques, and educating local service providers to meet the long-term needs of their villages.
