SA Veterinary Foundation contributes towards upgrading of computers at VetHouse

“The reason for the sponsorship was to assist in the improvement of efficiency at VetHouse” says Dr Joubert Viljoen, Chairman of the Foundation. Providing a new server for SAVA and upgrading some of the other computers in the network, helped in improving the process.”

“The new laptop for the MD of SAVA, who also sits on the board of the Foundation, also aids the efficiency within SAVA, which has a bearing on activities of Groups and Branches of SAVA as well as the Veterinary Foundation.”

The South African Veterinary Foundation has a two tier focus:

  • To raise money to promote a greater understanding of animals by means of research and an informed public.
  • To promote and advance Veterinary and other Biological Sciences in all their aspects. This includes supporting veterinary research at all levels, to fund bursaries and loans for veterinary studies and to invest and administer various financial portfolios in order to promote the knowledge, image and status of the Veterinary and Para-veterinary Professions and practice within Southern Africa resulting in improved quality of life for animal and man.
