Checking Animal Health in Ke Salah
Renee Thakali, USDA Agricultural Advisor
in Afghanistan visited Ke Salah Village
in Afghanistan. This is the
account with pictures.
was my first mission to visit a remote and friendly Hazaran
tribe village up in the mountains. I invited Dr Tuba Safi to
come along, a young lady just graduated from Vet School in
Kabul, as she needs some practical experience before
starting her own village vet clinic. We also met with
village elders to discuss the possible donation of a village
tractor to plow their fields. The village reminded me of
Thak Khola in Nepal. We were invited for tea but had a long
drive back over rough roads. The women were all hiding
behind windows carefully watching all the activity."
