IMV imaging Clinical team visit the Gambian Horse and Donkey Trust (GHDT) The Gambia is the smallest country in mainland Africa. Apart from the Atlantic coastline, the country is completely surrounded by French speaking Senegal, and follows the winding course of the Gambia river inland. Gambian Diaries It was here in 2002 that the late Stella Marsden OBE and her sister Heather Armstrong set up the Gambian Horse and Donkey Trust (GHDT). Created to improve the health, welfare and productivity of all Gambia’s animals, it provides essential veterinary services throughout the country. The charity is always seeking qualified vets to work with them; to help with patient care and treatment, perform surgical procedures, and educate the staff at their clinics. So, when the opportunity came for some of the vets within IMV to spend some time helping the charity, Clinical Teammates Amy Haylock, Harriet Rhodes and Sam Mauchlen jumped at the chance.
