Voices from the projects

Four months ago, I received three female goats from VSF Germany. Only two months after I received them all three of them had twins: now I own nine goats that are providing milk to the entire family!"

Asma Hassan, pastoralist (South Kordofan State, Sudan)

As a result of the 2015 drought, I lost 45 goats, 12 camels, all 20 cattle I owned and was only left with 15 goats and 3 camels. Had it not been for the support of VSF Germany, the goats and camels that survived then would have eventually died, too." 

Abrahim Abanugus, pastoralist (Erebti District/Ethiopia)

Being the breadwinner in my house with no income, I was selected to benefit from VSF Germany`s 'Access to Food' project. It saved us from hunger and the difficulties of harsh climate conditions."

Khalif, widow (Alle-amin IDP camp, Galkayo/Somalia)

We thank VSF Germany and GIZ for giving priority to peace dialogues: all the communities in Mt. Kulal have had honest, serious talks amongst themselves on peace and sharing the scarce pasture and water resources. We met all other communities in Loiyangalani and discussed issues of resource sharing and friendly coexistence."

Lepalo Lengungu, Environmental Management Commitee Member (Larachi/Kenya)
