BRILIB XXXII completed 'Rocinante' Programme, developed during one week together with Spanish veterinary teachers who carried out various activities to support Lebanese livestock farmers. 

Thus, five university teachers from the University of Murcia and one from the University of Cordoba (Second Lieutenant -Reserve Officer-) provided veterinary assistance in the area of the Eastern Sector of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL). The teachers could use medicines and vaccines thanks to donations from Spain.
