In 2017, SUST once again supported the urgently needed rabies vaccinations in the Virunga National Park.
3004 dogs and 510 cats were vaccinated thanks to the contributions of SUST. These vaccinations are crucial: Rabies cases lead to killing campaigns of dogs and cats for fear of infecting humans.
With the vehicle that SUST financed some years ago, remote villages are easily accessible. In addition, the vehicle often serves as a temporary clinic if there are no locations for treatment.
The educational materials supplied by SUST also enable African animal welfare workers to educate the population about endo- and ectoparasites and thus prevent further zoonoses (and of course improve the health of animals and their owners).
