The University of Veterinary Science and Thailand’s Kasetsart University have collaborated to send students from twelve countries to conduct field research in Myanmar from 1 to 8 July. The programme is part of the ASEAN Veterinary Volunteer Project-2017.
The programme has collected 56 students of veterinary medicine from Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines, VietNam, Japan, America, Canada, France and Finland and they have already done field research in Thailand from 17 to 30 June, under the administration of twenty teachers. This time they will head to Central Myanmar and travel to Lethit, Thityone, Zeepinkan and Laydan villages in Myingyan Township.
The group will hold educational seminars, perform cattle and rabies vaccination, give medicine to get rid of parasitic worms, perform needed surgeries on animals and plant long-lived trees, among other projects.—GNLM
