The Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS) is asking veterinary practices to support its efforts to kit out a new clinic in Africa.

With only a month to go before the clinic in Blantyre, Malawi opens, WVS needs vet practices to donate any equipment they no longer use or need.

The charity is calling its appeal “Equip A Clinic – One Month, One Trip, One Clinic” and is hoping for enough donations to fill a 20ft container.

WVS managing director James Florence said: “We know this is an incredibly ambitious appeal, but with help from our supporters within the veterinary community we can achieve this.”

Blantyre is home to a vast and rich array of animals that desperately need veterinary aid. WVS will be working alongside Malawian vets and communities with livestock vaccinations, neutering and rabies prevention.

The list of items sought for the new clinic includes floor scales, theatre lights, tables and other surgical equipment.
