In Bangladesh, a vaccination camp was organized at a high school to ensure proper treatment and health of 32 cows and 42 goats belonging to Heifer project partner families. Though there was no notice or advertisement of the event, in the 121 cows and 171 goats were vaccinated.
A livestock officer and vaccinator were invited and the livestock officer expressed surprise at the number of animals that were brought to be vaccinated and how well organized the camp turned out compared with other cases where, often, the vaccinator has to go door to door to cover the area and protect the animals.
In this case, the camp not only ensured better treatment for local livestock, but it helped showcase the project’s image and differences with programs operated by other organizations. It also is expected to help ease people’s concerns about the project and refute propaganda that has been spread about the project.
