Testimonial: How a Belgian NGO contributes to global sustainability

The story of APOPO, a Belgian NGO, truly began when Bart Weetjens, founder of the organization, developed a special relationship and appreciation for the rodents he kept as childhood pets in Belgium. Years later, this relationship would yield more than just friendship; it would offer the opportunity to help change a world where landmines pose a threat to life and progress in more than 60 countries and where Tuberculosis affects millions of lives across the world every year.
