"The reason for this trip is for them to see the mature program in operation," said veterinarian Andrew Clark, one of the trip's coordinators. "The economic implications of what we are doing are enormous in terms of livelihoods of people," said veterinarian Peter Ithondeka, Kenya's chief veterinary officer.
