"It is wonderful to see groups in Asia passionately working together to help animals. It made me feel that we are not alone. I learned a lot from other groups and activists who work tirelessly in Asia. It is also nice to finally meet activists in person that I have worked with many years. Thank you so much for all involved to make the event successful. "

"AfA conference was a very special moment for me - it's simply because I was surrounded by people with the same compassion and love."
"AfA's biennial conference reflects the vitality and promise of organized concern for animals in Asia Pacific nations, and its participants include some of the most accomplished campaigners in the region. For longtime advocates and for new ones, it's a don't-miss experience."
