Animal Care Camps

During this part of the year every year a large number of domestic animals suffer a lot due to various diseases. Swadhina for many years is concerned about this issue and some regular programmes are undertaken to tackle the issue to provide relief to the animals. 

First of all every year Animal Care Camps are held for women so that they can learn about various diseases of the animals like cow, buffalo, pigs, goats, and, of course birds like hens and ducks. A lot of the suffering for these animals can be reduced if timely vaccination is done, and proper treatment is done in early time. The trainees also learn how to vaccinate. Swadhina also provides know how to treat wounds of the animals and the ointments names and how to put.
