What Our Volunteers Say

Veterinary Surgeon

I’ve worked with a few animal welfare charities, but Mbwa wa Africa is special. I first met Jens and Sandra in 2018 and from the first visit they treated me like family. I’ve now had 3 trips to Mbwa wa Africa and hope to be back again soon. The clinical standards are as high as possible, the charity is undoubtedly improving animal welfare in Tanzania. I’ve worked with some amazing people and made long term friendships. Meru district is a beautiful part of Tanzania and a great place to spend time. I would have no hesitation in recommending volunteering with Mbwa wa Africa.
