VSF Switzerland - Livelihood Puntland Somalia

15.05.2014 - 15.10.2015

Somalia continues to face food insecurity with more than 860'000 people in need of assistance.

With this intervention along with its partner VSF, SDC aims to improve veterinary services in the semi-autonomous state of Puntland, thus improving the main livelihood of its inhabitants.
