Local villagers from Daaba, Kenya, retrieve water from a well on Aug. 3, 2012, while preparing for a Veterinary Civic Action Program, or VETCAP. The VETCAP involved local civilians; the Kenyan military; a local veterinarian; a representative from the international organization Veterinaires Sans Frontieres-Suisse; and the 448th Civil Affairs Battalion of Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa, or CJTF-HOA. CJTF-HOA participates in many VETCAPs across East Africa, aiming to help strengthen the capabilities of community based animal health workers, ensure livestock health, enhance agriculture and economic stability and develop trust and confidence with partner nations.
