Instead of sending Christmas cards at the end of 2017 we made a donation to 4SmilingFaces for the purchase of a beamer, for the education of children in the Disabled Rehabilitation Center in Nepal.

In 2011 we have worked in central Asia: in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
Give a cow
De charity foundation “Give a cow” has a very special and practical way to ameliorate the living standard of disabled children. She gives dairy cows to families, often single mothers, with a disabled child in Kyrgyzstan. Thus the family has a better chance to get out of the social isolation, and can better participate in the local community and trade. The families are carefully selected and monitored through a collaboration with the local organization “’Every Child”’ (Nur Bala). VetEffecT has donated 3 cows; Eleonora, Elizabeth and Elena to help 3 families.

VetEffecT sponsored the Oxfam Trailwalker 2013. The Team Cucarachas, including VetEffecT Staff , took part during the weekend of 24 & 25th of August 2013 to the Oxfam Trailwalker. Along with 285 other teams, a group of 4 sportive youngsters, forming from Team Cucarachas, walked during more than 25 hours in a row and covered exactly 100 km in the Eastern region of Haute Fagnes, in Belgium. In order to support Oxfam activities and projects in the developing countries, the team raised exactly €1699 because they believe everyone needs to eat sufficiently, to live in health and in decent conditions, to get educated, and to evolve in a safe and peaceful environment.
