About VSF - Suisse Vétérinaires Sans Frontières – Suisse (VSF-Suisse) is a development-oriented, politically and religiously neutral non-profit international non-governmental organization (INGO) headquartered in Berne, Switzerland. Activities range from emergency relief to long-term development, with projects in Togo Mali, South Sudan, Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia.

VSF-Suisse envisions having healthy people live and derive their livelihoods from healthy livestock in a sustainable, healthy and peaceful environment.

VSF-Suisse began work in Ethiopia in 2010 as a Foreign Charity, implementing resilience-building, disaster-risk reduction, animal-health and nutrition-sensitive humanitarian interventions. Linking agricultural and livestock interventions to community-based nutrition has been a flagship activity of the organization (and of the Ethiopia Programme in particular). In this regard, results from shorter-term emergency interventions have demonstrated longer-term nutritional impacts, and many of the organization’s projects have consequently been extended and scaled up.
