Veterinarians without Borders has launched its 4th Annual Rabies Campaign to increase awareness about the global rabies issue. Although rabies is a preventable disease, it still kills 55,000+ people each year, most of whom are children living in poverty in Africa and Asia.
This September, you can Help Make Rabies History! by organizing a fundraising activity. Our month-long Rabies Campaign is a part of activities taking place around the world in support of World Rabies Day (September 28, 2011)
Fundraising for this campaign will not only support our international rabies prevention programs in Cambodia, Guatemala, India, Laos, Malawi, Northern Canada and Uganda, the top two teams that raises the most can win prizes! Aeroplan has again generously donated prize packages of Aeroplan miles!
Support this cause by either donating directly to VWB/VSF (please note RABIES in the comment box), or by partnering with others to organize an exciting fundraising activity. Check out some fundraising ideas on the VWB/VSF website.
