Students of veterinary medicine from Southeast Asia, the United States, Canada, and Japan have conducted fieldwork in Myingyan Township, Mandalay Region and administered vaccinations to the local livestock and dogs in the area. They have also planted trees for reforestation efforts.
The programme is part of the ASEAN Veterinary Volunteer Project 2017. The group of students are led by Dr. Ye Htut Aung, Deputy Professor of the University of Veterinary Science (Yezin) and Dr. Tanu Pinyopummintr, the Associate Dean of Kasetsart University. The group will hold educational seminars, perform cattle and rabies vaccinations, give medicine to get rid of parasitic worms, perform needed surgeries on animals and plant long-living trees, among other projects in Lethit, Thityone, Zeepinkan and Laydan villages in Myinchan township.—U Zaw Min Naing (Myingyan)
