Reaching out to the forgotten victims of the earthquake, Animal Nepal in the wake of the disaster treated around 900 animals. Three veterinary teams visited Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Dhading and Sindhupalchowk to help farm and pet animals. “Many people consider animals less important but to farmers their livestock are essential to their survival”, says Director Uttam Kafle.
