Our response team based in India has been busy working in Assam, alongside the Department of Animal Husbandry and community leaders to help farmers and animal owners in the flood hit areas.
So far we have set up six of the seven planned veterinary health camps which have already benefited nearly 1,000 animal owners and nearly 24,000 animals.
We have also distributed surgical kits and 875 bags of rice bran (animal feed)in the flood affected areas directly benefiting 1,203 households, and nearly 10,000 cattle and pigs.
We expect to distribute a further 1,520 bags of rice bran this week.
The Department of Animal Husbandry has been very co-operative in organising and implementing these activities. Community leaders have also been heavily involved in the response operation.
