relationship between the money that goes to Africa and to research for vaccination for pets

In this post, there is a relationship between the money that goes to Africa and to research for vaccination for pets.

Money that goes to a company:

Exact amounts are not known. Each company receives grants and which varies depending on the project. Each company has also money from another source, like privet, banks, … This money all together is around millions.

So, for every company it is different. I will give you some sales data from a couple of companies of the animal pharm’s top 20.

Not all these companies invest in animals, so I only selected 5 companies for animals.

1)   Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Healt: sale in 2009 à 2120,9 EUR and in 2010 à 2,743.19 EUR

2)   Merial: In 2009: 1,959.71 EUR and in 2010: 2,021.87 EUR

3)   Elanco: In 2009: 926.146 EUR and in 2010: 1,067.33 EUR

4)   INDEXX Laboratories: In 2009: 705.927 EUR and in 2010: 757.337 EUR

5)   Virbacc: In 2009: 467,1 EUR and in 2010: 572,8 EUR

I didn’t find more information on the money transfers specific for the companies performing research for pets. That’s why I focused on this data.

Money that goes to Africa.

29,3 million euros was spent extra than the initial budgeted, since 18,4 million euros extra was collected. This increase can be attributed to two major catastrophes that occurred in Haiti and Pakistan.

The final result was assigned to the emergency fund of ‘Artsen zonder grenzen’. This allows us to immediately help all victims, both those of high profile disaster like this for emergencies, which are not talked about in this post.

  1. A first remark: what is money that goes to a company?
    At this moment I don’t see any relation between the cash flows and neither do I see any actual message in the conclusion.

  2. Bart Minne says:

    I agree, donations to charity are only done by companies that are actually making profit. So only when the economy is stimulated, the cash flow towards charity will increase.

    But this is not only done by grants, this is also a political topic that goes beyond the borders of this blog.
