Through the project, Vetstream and the charity plan to bring more than 150 African veterinary practices online in five sub-Saharan countries – Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda – by the end of 2015.

Computers 4 Africa's team data-wipes donated equipment, refurbishes it, installs software and browser solutions, and ships it to Africa for use by veterinarians in the AFSCAN-participating countries.

Dr Mark Johnston, managing director of Vetstream, said: "These days we replace IT equipment so often that it is amazing how quickly a large pile of redundant equipment can build up."
