For many years now our herds of goats have been plagued with diseases which are associated with worm bacteria. This week, for the first time, we had a visit from the FAO animal doctors (Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN) who came with 6000 vaccinations for the community’s herds. This was a very exciting day for us because healthy goats mean that our herders will not lose as many, which means more money, milk and food for the community.

After the doctors had administered the drugs, which took almost all of the day, we had a big celebration in the community hall with the elders and children.
