Missing veterinary facilities in Madhya Pradesh

January 29; Dindori, Madhya Pradesh
Community Correspondent, Surjiya, reports on the lack of a veterinary hospital in Bhilai Ryt Village.  There are 3 villages in the surrounding region and many of the residents are dependent on animal husbandry for their livelihoods. There hasn't ever been a veterinary center in the area, so residents  travel 25 kilometers in order to have their cattle, and other livestock vaccinated. Due to the length of the journey and the difficulty in accessing necessary facilities, many cattle die of preventable causes and livelihoods are put in jeopardy. 

CALL TO ACTION: Call Dr. Bharti Pathak from the Veterinary Hospital of Shahpura Village, on +91-7898570720, to demand that a veterinary hospital be set up in an area easily accessible to the residents of Bhilai Ryt Village Council so that their livelihoods are protected.
