The SAVF provided financial support to a group of Onderstepoort and Spanish veterinary students who recently visited a Community Veterinary Clinic.

The Onderstepoort students were hosting the Spanish students as part of an International Veterinary Students Association exchange. The Community Veterinary Clinic in Shoshanguwe gave them a bit of an idea of some of the challenges facing veterinary services in a developing country and doing work in an informal settlement.

With the help of Dr. Nenene Qekwana they did a great deal of hands-on work on the day and with the help of the SAVF, the committee was also able to sponsor a fridge for the clinic.
