Derby vets help save African animals

Two vets and an equine nurse have given up their time this Christmas to fly to Rwanda, the Gambia and the Maldives, to support international charities who care for a variety of animals from donkeys and cattle to turtles, by providing on-the-ground veterinary expertise and training.

Scarsdale Vet’s Robert Howard (farm vet, volunteering in Rwanda), Marie Rippingale (senior equine nurse, volunteering in The Gambia) and Karen Davis (partner and small animal vet, volunteering in the Maldives) are all spending two weeks visiting countries supporting charities Send a Cow, The Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust (GHDT) and the Olive Ridley Project.
