With the annual July commemoration of the life of former president Nelson Mandela having kicked off, a group of University of Pretoria (UP) Veterinary Science students is using their new skills to help farmers in rural areas.
Olebile Olibile and Deborah Mushwana form part of the group of final-year Veterinary Science students who offer their skills every day at the Hluvukani Animal Clinic in Mpumalanga or in the surrounding community. The students work with a variety of dogs, livestock and wildlife, providing services such as medical care. “We travel every morning to Hluvukani [from the Hans Hoheisien
Wildlife Research Station in the Kruger Park], where we either work at the clinic or go into the community on call-outs to attend to a variety of animals,” Mushwana said.
