Victor, with much experience in developing animations, will be creating educational videos about the problem of snakebite and raise awareness of this project.  

Update (Sept 2017): For those who have been following our progress for the past few years, you may have noted that we have not released any media to promote awareness or our project. As such, Victor Silva, who has been a part of our project since 2015, will not be a part of our team anymore. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
