Dear Team,

Fantastic February and thank you to everyone for their efforts this month! Below is the update of power! 

Teams 

Our first ever team in Ghana has been this month’s big thing!!

Education

We have just crossed the three million mark of people rabies educated by Mission Rabies!! Just amazing! Huge thanks to Debbie who has been working incredibly hard to get rabies education into the Malawian National Curriculum. Gareth’s full report is below.

Truck 

It’s been a great month for the truck – a tyre puncture on a 27tonne vehicle is never an easy thing to sort but the team pulled together! Praveen’s report is below.

Ranchi

2,663 vaccinations and 1,012 surgeries in Feb!! This year’s APCRI conference is being held in Ranchi which is a huge boost for the awareness of the project HOPE and MR are running there.

Goa 

7,219 dogs vaccinated in Goa last month!! We’ve had a few good articles in the Times of India highlighting the work of the project this month and I’d like to extend a nice welcome to Johnson, Sarika and Sairaj who have joined the team! A huge thanks to Rotary for their immense support too!

Malawi

Whilst Jo has been running the Ghana campaign with Julie, Dagmar has been running all the Malawian projects. There’s been some great rescues and thanks to Dr Simon for all his continued and invaluable support.

Other news 

The team have been busy doing lots of presentations at various vet schools and events. We are looking forward to a big March in Goa with a visit from the New York Times and Andy and Dr Gowri are both speaking at the CVA conference.

Ghana has been the big focus this last month – we achieved over 80% coverage and vaccinated 4,370 dogs! The report on this project will shortly be circulated but a sincere thanks to WSAVA Foundation, WHO and FAO for their huge support with this. Dr Moses Djimatey was a complete force in enabling this project to happen, as were Jo, Julie and a brilliant team of international volunteers. 

Not many spaces left for MR Sri Lanka, and there’s a tonne of projects in the pipeline. The plates are all spinning – we wouldn’t want it any other way!!!

ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luke
