Alan J Whitaker, the Chairman of BCF Botswana, Côte d'Ivoire DRC, Ghana, Gambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe and CEO of BCF UK and South Africa has been invited to join the Executive Committee of the South African Society for Animals in Distress.

SAID provides indigent communities with door to door affordable and accessible veterinary care while simultaneously educating owners.

SAID is a multi-practice that serves companion animals, stock and equine. Their equine services sustain the health and welfare of the animals used for the cartage and delivery of coal in areas where such practices are ongoing.

The small animal hospital provides tens of thousands of treatments every year to indigent communities, while the Society's youth mentorship programme for postgraduate para-veterinarians ensures that they can sustainably capacitate their services and compliment the wider veterinary and welfare community.

BCF is proud that this prestigious organisation has invited Alan to join their leadership team.
