NEW CLINIC IN MZUZU
A MESSAGE FROM OUR TEAM!
Our ALL CREATURES staff have been very busy this month, as we officially opened our second office in Mzuzu (find our story below). With our additional office, we welcome new staff members to the team: Vet Manager Dr. Bruce Mwiinga, Administrative Assistant Tionge Namatumbo, vet nurses Faith Pemba, Mercy Zimba, and intern Blessings Chilanga. Dr. Bruce comes to us from Zambia where he recieved a degree in Veterinary Science from the University of Zambia. He came to Malawi as manager of the East Coast Fever (ECF) vaccination campaign we held in Mzimba district. He specializes in livestock health and does livestock vaccination clinics throughout Mzuzu. In addition to the opening of a new office, we hosted three vet volunteers from the Netherlands. They assisted us greatly with the spay and neuter clinic in Mzuzu as well as with pertinent diagnosis and operations at the Lilongwe clinic. These kinds of volunteer opportunities provide an important mutually beneficial relationship, as our staff learns new skills and new insight from the volunteers, and they in turn gain new experiences of vet practice in a developing country. It is something our organization would like to expand on and utilize long term. If you have connections to schools or organizations in the animal science field, please reach out to us and check out our volunteer page! All in all, the month of November has been an incredibly busy one for everyone at ALL CREATURES, working tirelessly to care for abused and abandoned pets, and maintaining our rescue so that each of our animals has a quality of life that they deserve.
