Vaccinating livestock

A top priority is to prevent farmers and pastoralists from losing their livestock. "I vaccinate 1,000 animals a day," explains Taha Abdeldjalil. "This is a great relief to the local community because their animals don't die and they can sell them. Here, a goat is worth a sack of millet so we have to try to save it."
