World Vets Volunteers Return from Pacific Partnership Deployment


Volunteers Return from Pacific Partnership
After a summer long adventure, all World Vets volunteers have returned home after living onboard the USNS Mercy, a hospital ship, and working onshore alongside military veterinarians as part of Pacific Partnership 2010.  Pacific Partnership is a humanitarian aid mission operated on an annual basis and is made possible through the collaboration of the US Navy with partner nations, foreign military and medical personnel as well as NGOs to provide medical, dental and veterinary care. World Vets volunteers assisted their veterinary program and provided veterinary aid to four different countries this year; Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Timor Leste. They treated not only small animals, but water buffalo, cattle, pigs, chickens, sheep and much more. We are proud to be the veterinary NGO represented on this mission and look forward to doing it again next year! More pictures can be seen here
